The FISU Flag arrives in Krasnoyarsk

Mayor of the city of Krasnoyarsk Edham Akbulatov handed over the official FISU flag to the representatives of the Executive directorate of the 29th Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019

Krasnoyarsk took part in the mass cross country ski race “Russian Ski Track 2017”. A diversified programme was prepared for the participants of the sports festival: ski races of different distances, figure-skating gala exhibitions and educational master classes were conducted; competitions in football, floorball, winter basketball and winter volleyball took place. The culmination of the festival was the ceremony of the FISU flag handover to the representatives of the Executive directorate of the 29th Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019.

“It is no coincidence that the Tatyshev park, a sport heart of our city, is the place where I hand over the FISU flag to the Directorate of the Winter Universiade 2019 who are young and active guys making every effort to conduct the Universiade in Krasnoyarsk at the highest level. The Universiade is also important because it will allow our city to implement a whole range of projects oriented towards change of quality of life of our citizens. And I am sure that we will succeed in this”, said the Mayor of the city of Krasnoyarsk.

When Maxim Urazov, the Director General of the Executive directorate of the 29th Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019, accepted the flag, he pointed out “Krasnoyarsk is actively preparing to the Universiade. More than 34 venues will be built; our city will be reshaped. We have a unique chance to demonstrate our beautiful city to foreign guests and colleagues. We are going to make all efforts to make the Universiade 2019 the best, the most open and friendly. The Universiade is to continue the sport traditions of Krasnoyarsk; it will provide a possibility to accept new events in the capital of the Krasnoyarsk Region”.

A honorary mission to overcome a ski track with the FISU flag was entrusted to a Krasnoyarsk champion of the 28th Winter Universiade Almaty 2017 Sergey Korastylev who won a gold medal as a member of the national team in mixed relay, a silver medal in individual race and another gold medal in pursuit race.

It should be noted that the FISU flag will be presented at all academic sites of the city. By tradition, at the official Winter Universiade Closing ceremony it will be handled over to the representatives of the future Universiades.
