University students at the Kettlebell lifting sports contest of St. Petersburg universities

On December 7, the contest of St. Petersburg universities in kettlebell lifting was held in Pushkin town, at the venue of St. Petersburg State Agrarian University. The contest was attended by 20 teams.

The team of our university was represented by 8 students: 5 young men and 3 girls - winners and prize-winners of the SPbSUT Sports and Athletics Games in kettlebell lifting competitions. Young men performed in the exercise «push along a long cycle of two weights of 24 kg», and girls in the exercise «jerk of a weight of 16 kg».

 In the team classification, according to the results of the performance of all athletes, the SPbSUT team took 8th place. This is so far one of the best results of the university’s teams in the Sports and athletics contest of St. Petersburg universities, but according to the coach of the team, the senior lecturer of the Physical Culture Department, Bazanov Andrei Nikolaevich, «there is still work to do» and the team has a large reserve.

 We wish our guys great starts in the next competitions!
