– This is not the first time, when our team visited the All-Russian festival. All the guys are proven, it gives confidence in our abilities. But when you see rivals who came to compete with you from different parts of the country, buck fever begins. At such moments you realize again the importance and level of the event. Also I would like to highlight the first medals of our guys. In any case, awards of the All-Russian level are a great achievement. Thanks to the festival we managed to improve the team's last year's result and feel once again the support of our nearest ones, fans and management, that is especially valuable in our time - said the captain of the team, Denis Kazakov, the operator of conversion unit.

– We have positive impressions on this event. The organization is excellent, the judges are highly qualified, the sports complex and equipment are specialized. It is an honor to take part in competitions of this level and scale. But it is, of course, difficult for us, sports fans, to compete on an equal level with athletes and sports organizations. But we tried, fought and, on my opinion, we showed worthy results! Almost all participants have improved their personal results in many kinds of sport in the “Ready for labor and defense race” Norm in comparison with the regional competitions in Perm and last year's all-Russian competitions in Ufa. Me, too, - added Mrs. Natalya Fedorova, career guidance specialist.
