The competitions of Russia in the Northern all-around are taking place for the first time in Noviy Urengoy. More than 60 sportspeople from Yamal, Yugra, Yakutia, Magadan Oblast, Evenk Autonomous Okrug, Kamchatka Krai and Tyumen Oblast are participating in the competitions.
The competitions were organized on three venues. The participants are competing in triple jump, running with a stick, throwing of a tynzyan on a khorey, jumping over narty – nomadic sledges, throwing of an axe at the distance.
According to the information given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the informational and analytical board under the administration of Noviy Urengoy, Yamal has every chance to win the victory in the competitions. Thus, last November the national team of the region became the first among the participants of the Cup of Russia in Northern all-round, which took place in Salekhard. Yuri Laptander from Priuralskiy district set the record of Russia in throwing a tynzyan on a khorey — 205 hits, earlier the record was 150 hits. Another sportsman from Priuralskiy district Yegor Vartsapov became the absolute champion in throwing of an axe at the distance — 206 meters.
It should be noted that the Northern all-around is developing in all autonomous regions and northern territories of Russia — from Murmansk Oblast to Chukotka. This sport can be considered the most universal. One, who is engaged in the Northern all-around, can participate in all sports.
(The note: a tynzyan is a rope lasso for catching a reindeer; a khorey is a long pole for driving a reindeer sleigh).
