On August 22, 2020, the education center in Kudrovo, Leningrad Oblast, hosted a field hockey tournament as part of the Summer Festival of Ethnic and Street Sports.
The ELCIR team called Severnaya rys (“The Northern Lynx”) played in the youth system, which, however, did not hinder it from winning 2nd place. The other competitors were the team of the Tikhvin Diocese of The Russian Orthodox Church, the team of Sosnovy bor, and the House of Friendship interethnic team from St. Petersburg.
The event included artist performances. After the competition, the athletes refreshed themselves during a dinner party where they could share their impressions of the game.
Cordial thanks to all the organizers, participants, and spectators of the tournament for the chance to meet together again and benefit from this time on this warm Saturday! Let us continue to keep a sound mind in a sound body and may our Lord help us all!
