We would like to introduce our international students to our sports and traditions. As we see it, such events will help you to socialize better and quicker in the Russian community and anyway to experience a lot of positive emotions. I wish good luck to all participants. Let the games begin!” Sergei Vasin, Vice-Rector for International Affairs, opened the tournament.

The struggle was real at every match; all the participants were enthusiastic about the games. The teams were eager to win.
