Rugby Tournament of the French Ambassador

Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute has close partnerships with higher education institutions in France and with the Embassy of the French Republic in Ukraine. Thus young rugby players of our “Polytechnic” were invited to the VI International tournament “The Ambassador's Cup in Ukraine on Rugby”, which took place on October 13-14. In the level, and from that even more fierce, wrestling, in which took 27 teams, polytechnicians took the third prize venue and received an honorary Cup. All team players and coaches were awarded with diplomas and bronze medals.

The staff of the French Embassy in Ukraine also identified the best players in the tournament. Among them was the rugby player of our team Maxim Avramenko. He received a diploma, an exclusive medal and a valuable gift.

Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute continues to prepare the best highly skilled scientists and engineers. But the sport has never been forgotten either. And rugby has been one of his sports picks for over 55 years.
