Nornickel to help Dudinka curlers go to regional championship

February 28, 2024

20 region’s strongest teams will take part in the competition.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. From February 29 to March 6, the Krasnoyarsk region’s 20 best teams will meet in the curling championship at the Krasnoyarsk curling arena. Taimyr will be represented by three teams of six people each. The participants’ age ranges from 12 to 40 years, including two amateurs.

The games will be held in four groups of five teams each. To get to the semi-finals, they have to play all matches without losing. As the playing coach of the Dudinka team Andrey Zharnikov admitted, the chances of getting into the top three winners in this championship for Taimyr athletes are small; for most of them, this will be the first competition of this level. But the team will strive to take a place in the top ten.

Now the guys are actively preparing. The team will gain competitive experience thanks to the support of the Nornickel company.

“Of course, Nornickel’s help is very important for us. If it weren’t for the company, we would still be sitting in Dudinka, not being able to travel to such tournaments. Given the interest of children and adults in curling, it is important to me that they can participate in real games with experienced opponents and develop. Nornickel helps us a lot with this. In addition, thanks to the company, we will soon update our inventory”, shared Andrey Zharnikov.

In 2023, the Taimyr men’s curling team showed a brilliant result at the Krasnoyarsk region championship: the team brought silver to Dudinka and won a ticket to the Siberian championship. As a result of the meetings, the Taimyr curlers lost to the champion, the Hardline team, and did not make it to the semifinals. At the same time, at the championship of the Siberian Federal District, Dudinka’s athletes provided worthy competition to the strongest teams.

Let us remind you that last year Taimyr hosted the International Curling Tournament for the seventh time.
