Our badminton "dream team" was No 1 in Voronezh

International badminton team of the First Med won first place

IMG_1390.JPGThe international badminton team of the First Med scored victory and brought gold medals, the Cup and valuable prizes, having won the first place at Sports Festival "Physical culture and sports - the second profession of a doctor", the second stage of which took place in Voronezh (the Central Federal District of the RF).

On 14 - 15 March, 2013 at Voronezh stage medical students competed in swimming, chess, darts and badminton.

I.M. Sechenov First MSMU did not enter its darts team. So badminton players volunteered also to take part in this type of competitions. Our badminton girls in pair category even managed to win bronze in Darts competition, having conceded to silver medalists only 4 points.

We acclaim our international badminton team members – Master of Sports Valeria Ignatova (2nd year of Medical faculty), Candidate for Master of Sports of Julia Sikorskaya (both Russian) and two Malaysian students – Istefan Kokh (2nd year of Medical faculty, English medium) and Gregory Sebastian (3d year of Medical faculty, English medium). They won 20 games out of 20 possible in five hours game time.
