This time I took the tournament seriously and began to prepare several months in advance — I played on different sites with guys of different levels of athletic training. When I reached the finals and defeated all my opponents, I realized: my goal was achieved, and the mission was finally completed,” Azizbek Turgunbekov, student at the Agricultural and Technological Institute from Kyrgyzstan.

“Last year we also participated in the Spartakiad, but then we took a second place in mini-football. This time our goal was higher — to take the cup, which we did! I am glad that I was able to meet members of other construction teams. We had real fun together!” — Christian Rüstisch Stephen Guetanis, philology student from the Congo.

“It was an amazing competition! There were 20 teams in the mini-football tournament. We played 4 games and took an honorable first place! During all the matches I scored several goals! It’s unforgettable!” — Gardy Prophet, engineering student from Haiti.

RUDN construction team “Meridian of Friendship” has been participating in the Moscow Construction Team Spartakiad since 2019. During this time, the team has repeatedly won prizes in various sports, including arm wrestling, women’s basketball, mini-football and table tennis.
