The winners of the volleyball tournament among the teams of hero cities were determined in Sevastopol
Sevastopol hosted an annual volleyball tournament among the teams of hero cities, dedicated to the 78th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. The ceremonial closing of the competition took place on the basis of a new sports and recreation complex on Shevchenko Street.
For the first time, a volleyball tournament among the teams of hero cities, dedicated to the anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, was held in 2021. It was our joint idea: together with the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the All-Russian Volleyball Federation, Nikolai Platonovich Patrushev, we decided to establish its annual, traditional holding. We tried to do everything to make the participants of the tournament feel comfortable and able to spend time usefully. Children’s teams attended excursions on the 35th coastal battery, visited Tauric Chersonesos and got acquainted with the main sights of our city. This year, among all categories, the victory was taken by the teams of the Hero City of Sevastopol. Congratulations Sevastopol! Well, for everyone else, this is an additional incentive to come back to the tournament next year and take revenge— the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the governor of the city Mikhail Razvozhaev.
