STREET SPORTS FESTIVAL IN VOLGOGRAD
For the first time Yelena Isinbayeva Fund with support of the Fund of Presidential Grants and its special partner Igor Rybakov organized a major Russian festival of street sports such as parkour, workout and 3x3 streetball. The two-day festival was organized on the territory of the Russian History Museum in Volgograd. Two hundred participants from 13 regions of the country came to take part in the Volgograd competitions.
Every registered participant was given a starting kit with gifts and souvenirs from the fund (a t-shirt, a participant number, a shaker, a bottle of sports water, a sticker pack and a power bank).
The festival event that attracted most of the participants was streetball: 26 men’s and women’s teams took part in the festival. Most of them represented schools and universities. Sixty strongest athletes had registered for the workout event and competed in two programs: battle and base wars. The performance of tracers in the parkour event was also extremely spectacular. Thirty young men and women from 12 to 30 y.o. amazed the spectators with their jumps and tricks.
Beside the sporting program, there were numerous interactive activities at the festival: graffiti, street dance, freestyle rap, photo zones and photo printing with a hashtag of the event #StreetSportFest, music performance by a cover group “Kakaya raznitsa” (Whatever), a carton-made maze for children, a show of foam clouds and activities organizers.
