On April 3, 2021, the fifth annual children's sports festival "Start of young Metrostroyevtsev" among children of workers of organizations of the Moscow Metrostroy took place in the sports palace of the GBU SSHOR "Moskvich".
The holiday was timed to coincide with the 90th anniversary of the company and was called "We are the young generation of Mosmetrostroy!" In the first relay race of the "Construction Race" competition, 3 teams of young athletes took part: "Drivers", "Electricians" and "Welders". And in the second relay race "Workers of Labor" teams of sports families competed.
For the fifth year in a row, the event has been organized by the Council of Young Specialists of Mosmetrostroy Organizations with the support of the Mosmetrostroy leadership.
The celebration was attended by guests of honor: Deputy General Director Oleg Nikolaevich Melnikov, Deputy General Director for Personnel Management and Corporate Relations Oksana Vladimirovna Menshina, Chairman of the territorial committee of the trade union of workers of Mosmetrostroy organizations Sergey Grigorievich Steshenko, Chairman of the SMS KGPS Olga Kuleshova, acting Galina Matsyuta, Chairman of the Council of Young Specialists of Mosmetrostroy Organizations. The event was hosted by Alena Laricheva and Anton Sidorenkov.
- This is a great sports event that has brought together different generations. Our grandparents devoted many years to Mosmetrostroy, strengthening the team spirit, continuity and communication between generations, - said Oleg Melnikov, Deputy General Director of the company, during the opening ceremony.
They also remembered that a year ago these families had a hard time - in the spring of 2020, many employees were building an infectious diseases hospital in Voronovsky. The receding pandemic made it possible to hold a holiday in the spring that brought together a record number of participants aged 4 to 12 years. Each team numbered two dozen boys and girls. The kids dressed in red ("Drivers"), blue ("Electricians") and orange ("Welders") T-shirts and caps with the company logo.
The first test was the relay races. Run faster than your opponents, have time to put on a vest and a helmet, go around the cones, roll the ball with a brush to the mark and return it to the next player, crawl through the tunnel and, of course, pass the turn to defend the team's honor to the next participant with your palm.
Passions ran high from task to task. Parents helped the kids to overcome obstacles, leading them by the hand. The older children tried to demonstrate all their skills, bringing the coveted victory to the team at every stage of the fun competition.
"Start of Young Metrostroyevtsev" became one of the key social events of the year and brought together active metro construction families, love for sports and children! This year the holiday turned out to be really kind, cheerful and dynamic.
- All are the best! - summed up Oleg Melnikov, presenting all the participants with diplomas and gifts to the kids who went to the sports starts.
