Dancing as a warm-up before the competition. Divided into teams and into battle: trampoline, jumping, ball game and mini-version of golf. The stars of television and sports help the children overcome the obstacle course.
“We need to get out more often to such events, because the child felt good here today, he participated everywhere, he was not in any way constrained, he made contact with everyone, everyone is glad to see each other,” said Maria Ivanova, mother.
The teams included children, both from general education schools and from specialized ones. Tennis player Vera Dushevina took the youngest group for herself. The guys immediately fell in love with their captain and followed all the commands of the mentor.
