Participants passed the distance well. There were difficulties with snow, they had obstacles. But they are well trained.
Young contestants tested their speed, agility and endurance skills. Participants passed an obstacle course, competed on a gymnastic apparatus, handled with military equipment and special equipment. As experts say, the conditions and tests corresponded to the standards of military service in the army.
