All-Russian rowing competition among students were held on October 4-8 in Moscow.

More than 250 athletes took part in the competition. There were the students from higher educational institutions of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Kazan and other Russian cities. NovSU was represented by a team of 12 people – 8 boys and 4 girls. 

Novgorod students competed in such categories as single and twos (in normal and light weight), fours and eights. In addition, the finals of the student league (the summer stage) were held there. The competition was held among the eights. 

As a result, the NovSU combined team took the second place in the team title. Also our athletes managed to win silver among women's twos in normal and light weight, bronze in women's lightweight single. The student of the School of Continuous Pedagogical Education Elizaveta Afyrkina brought her team a gold medal in the women's singles.


“I have the best impressions. The competitions were held at a high level, much better than the last year. There were more participants, therefore the competition was tougher, and it was more interesting to win”, said Elizaveta.
