More than 300 people, 8 teams, 8 disciplines — the 6th Spartakiad Games of the mining division of Rosatom were held on the 16th of September in Serebryany Bor
Teams of the “atomists” from the uranium holding companies gathered to compete in strength, dexterity and ingenuity — PIMCU, PJSC, Khiagda, JSC, Dalur, JSC, ARMZ-Service, JSC, VNIPIpromtechnologii, JSC, Rusburmash, JSC, holding company Atomredmetzoloto, JSC, and the employees’ children team. In the best traditions of the Olympic movement, the Games started with a parade of athletes, and the creative team presentations set a cheerful and positive attitude for the whole day.
Spartakiad is definitely the holiday we have all been waiting for, and it is also an excellent instrument for teambuilding. Ability to work together in a team, achieve a high score, win — those are the principles that we are guided by not only on the sports ground, but every day in our workplace. May the best team among us win today, and our collective will become even more united, and better prepared to supply raw materials for the nuclear industry competently and on time", — said Vladimir Verkhovtsev, Director General of the uranium holding, welcoming the participants.
The anthem of the ARMZ Spartakiad, performed simultaneously by all the participants, gave a start to the competition. Main battles broke out on the football and volleyball courts, in the table tennis and chess tournaments, where in fair competition the athletes demonstrated skill and the will to win. For some, the competition was the expected triumph, for others it turned into a bitter feeling of disappointment. Thus, the team of VNIPIpromtechnologii delivered a surprise by taking the 1st place in the overall standings and getting ahead of the permanent leader of past seasons — the team of PIMCU, PJSC. Bronze went to athletes from Rusburmash, JSC.
While the Games of the last year were dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the uranium holding, this year they were for the fans. They could try themselves in darts, archery, adventure game Fort Boyard, and exchange the points won for prizes and gifts. Animation activities for the children, buffette lines, various other dynamic entertainment options — this carefully planned and well organized holiday was intense and family-friendly.
