Presents for the champions
PJSC United Mining and Chemical Company awarded valuable gifts and cash rewards to Vilnohirsk Kickboxing Champions of Ukraine, Europe and World.
In January 2018, PJSC UMCC became the official sponsor of the young kickboxers of the military-patriotic club "Aidar" in the city of Vilnohirsk. Over this period, the young athletes have participated in competitions of various levels, ranging from regional, all-Ukrainian to the world championship, and in total they won 19 gold, 11 silver and 10 bronze medals.
Now, the names of the champions have become known in our city and beyond its borders. For the first time in the history of Vilnohirsk, a little girl Valeria Khudyakova became World Kickboxing Champion. The company decided to commend the achievements of the young winner, who already has won the titles of the champion of Ukraine and Europe in different sections of kickboxing, as well as the title of the world champion in Cossack fight. Khudyakova together with European Kickboxing Champion Maksym Kobyakov received valuable presents from the company. World Cossack Fight Champions and winners of various competitions Denys Tolkachev, Yakiv Khoprov and Nazar Yevtuschenko received cash rewards from the company.
The award ceremony took place at the director’s meeting of Vilnohirsk Mining and Metallurgical Plant. Acting Director of the subsidiary Tetiana Kiselyova on behalf of the plant and PJSC UMCC congratulated the kickboxers on their victories, presented them with their awards and wished them success in the future.
The athletes’ trainer Mykola Biletskiy thanked the company for support and sponsorship. “I’d like to sincerely thank the administration of the plant and PJSC UMCC and the staff that you support us morally and financially,” he said. “We felt this during the competitions and it inspired us to defend the honor of our city, country and our plant. We hugely appreciate it!”
By the way, in June, our athletes competed in another event – oblast WPKA Kickboxing Tournament “Amur Falcons” that was held in Dnipro. As the trainer of the fighters said, they were competing in the higher categories both in age and weight, as multiple champions should accept high load for better results. Despite that the fights were tough, Vilnohirsk kickboxers won 5 gold and 4 silver medals.
The summer break has begun, so everybody has a chance to rest, while in September the new training and new competitions will start again. We congratulate our champions on their victories and presents and wish them not to rest on their laurels, but advance to the new heights in this tough sport.
