Moscow "strongmen" have set the first record of WFYS

Participants of the festive procession lifted the weight 2017 times under the slogan «Towards the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students!» At the same time 20 people lifted the weight, each one – for 10 times, and then “strongmen” gave place to new participants of the flash mob who also made 10 approaches. The last 17 times the weight was lifted by honored guests of the Parade of Physical culture. In total, more than 2000 persons were involved in the event: students of 66 higher education institutions, representatives of sports and voluntary organizations, famous athletes, people who love sports and appreciate healthy lifestyle. Also, participants and spectators of the Parade of Physical culture became witnesses of the opening of the capital's oldest student competitions – the XXIX Moscow student sports games (MSSG).

The past event became only the first in a row planned. Ahead of WFYS there are new amazing events and records.
