Spring mountain river becomes turbulent, abounding and show all its indomitable character - just like the euro before the default in Greece. That is when it is time for the most extreme rafting professionals and amateurs! More than 500 gathered in early May in the Altai Mountains to show all their skills on the passage of swift mountain rivers.
Rafting Championship was held for 43th time. This tournament holds a rich history of brilliant victories and disappointing defeats, human struggling with nature. By the way, this time also nature was not going to submit athletes. At the first stage of competition athletes met a snow storm.In the latter stage a beautiful river has made a real «wall of water» for the competitors: they were forced to compete on very high water — 4th grade is out of 6 possible.
СCompetitions were held in 5 disciplines: qualification, slalom, sprint, safety, and long race. All teams have successfully passed all stages. By the way, the FreshForex team took an honorable II place in the region!!
«We congratulate the participants of rafting Championship with the successful completion of the event, — says Pavel Chebotarev, FreshForex CEO. — n spite of the fact that it was held in extreme conditions, all athletes showed courage, a strong team spirit and indomitable will to win. We wish them success and for our part we are ready to support the league in the future».
