The meeting with the best team of the enterprise “Panayevskoe” by the results of the year was held during the working trip of the head of Yamalskiy district Andrey Kugaievskiy to the Nadym tundra. In addition to discussion of measures on support for reindeer herders and comments on the message of the President, the traditional competitions were held among reindeer herders: the race of reindeer sleighs, triple ethnic jump, mas-wrestling and throwing of a tynzyan on a khorey. (The note: a tynzyan is a rope lasso for catching a reindeer and a khorey is a long pole for driving a reindeer sleigh).
The serious competitions in mas-wrestling were held among women. The intensity of emotions was such that even men could envy. One of the participants – a choum rabotnitsa, mother of four children Yelizaveta Salinder — threw her opponent over her shoulder. For that she was awarded with prolonged applause and admiration from the men in the team. For the spectacular throw and victory she was awarded with a gift useful in household — a chainsaw. Relatives of the heroine say that there are no special trainings in this sport: strength in the hands comes from constant physical work.
As Alexander Kuzyukov, the director of the enterprise “Panayevskoe” told the news agency “Sever-Press”, this year for the first time men offered to give representatives of the beautiful half of humanity gifts useful for everyone. Before that women were pleased with kitchen utensils: dishes, sets of pans.
(The note: a choum rabotnitsa or a choum-keeper, a reindeer herder’s wife working in a choum, running household and helping in reindeer herding and other work; a choum is a traditional home of nomads, reindeer herders; it is similar to a tepee).
