The next stage of selection to the National team of Russia has come to the end. The regional HMB tournament of the 1st league called “Siberian foothold” took place on the 13th of January, 2018 in Novosibirsk (Russia). The tournament has been included to The Buhurt League system, which means that it will be held according to the standards and rules of historical medieval battles, which are common for all countries. This day the strongest teams of the Siberian region came together on the list. So here is the result of the tournament:
The head of the Marshall Committee of HMB Russia Sergei Bogonenko judged the tournament for the first time in its history. The winners of the “Siberian foothold” will compete in the male nomination “5 vs 5″ for the honor of represent Russia as a part of the National team during the World Championship of HMB “Battle of the Nations”-2018 in Rome.
According to the representative of the organizing committee of the tournament Anastasia Pankova, during the tournament there were some unexpectable situations and, in general, everything went well. But there is always something to strive for.
Anastasia also told us that the main accent of the festival, of course, was done on sports, but everyone could find entertainment to their liking.
“As for the festival as a whole, this year we decided to give up the main direction of the sport and invited the Modern sword fighting Federation to form one of the locations to attract the attention of the parents, because most of the young athletes will come to HMB from there.”
Also there were organized various entertainment venues for all ages – guests could visit a fair or participate in a workshop and make a souvenir to commemorate the “Siberian foothold” -2018 together with the children.
We express our gratitude to “Novosibirsk Expocentre” for the photos.
