“Initially, I was assigned to “Transport. Information counter”. But the manager from the sports department of the city of Krasnoyarsk chose me as a volunteer assisting the judges. I settled and solved various issues of the judges. Then I was transferred to another function - the chaperone (a volunteer, accompanying the athlete for doping control). I worked with athletes from different countries. Knowledge of two foreign languages - English and French - helped me a lot. When I worked as a chaperone, I did not forget about my work with my already favorite judges - in my free time I came to their rescue, ”Varvara said.
The Universiade Directorate selected the top 100 of the 5,000 volunteers who worked at the competitions. For the announcement, the organizers chose an unusual dance flash mob format.
“We rehearsed the dance, prepared for the performance at the final evening of the Universiade. After the performance, we were asked to stay on stage and raise our arms with the bracelets up. Then the presenters announced that the bracelets of the top 100 volunteers would shine in a different color. And here I saw that everyone who is on the stage had bracelets glowing red, and the volunteers in the hall are blue. We're the best! I am happy about the experience, new acquaintances and the emotions that the Universiade gave! Thanks to the beloved university for the opportunity to participate in such a significant event for our country! ”- Varvara Dudnikova said.
