Sunday, 18 August 2013 15:37

Moscow Open Cup was a real festival of sitting volleyball, during which the teams gained an incomparable experience and were able to communicate in an informal condition.

List of tournament foreign visitors was impressive: the Chinese team Paralympic champion in 2012, London silver medalist Team USA, four-time world champion team of the Netherlands, multiple winner of the World and European Championships Slovenian team, member of the London Paralympics team Japan and Team Finland.

Traditionally, two teams were the hosts of the tournament - the team of Moscow, which is the basis of the Russian national team and CSP "Izmailovo", made up of young players.

Moscow and CSP "Izmailovo" completed group stage in the first position in groups. Team of Moscow defeated the teams of China and the United States. However, Americans took precedence over  the Moscow. In the other semifinal CSP "Izmailovo" lost the strongest team in the world, the national team of China. Thus the finale was the Olympic. This time U.S. team was celebrated the victory. Despite the score 3-0 Americans victory was not easy, and both players have demonstrated a truly beautiful game.

Two capitals team were fighting for the third place, and in spite of the friendship between our girls, the experience prevailed. Winning the match and the bronze medal went to Moscow team.

Consolatory playoff for 5-8 places turned out to be very interesting. Teams of Slovenia and the Netherlands, who claim for medals of the upcoming European Championships in September, fought for fifth place. In this struggle Netherlands was stronger.

Final places went to last year's Moscow Open participants prospective teams Japan and Finland.

At the conclusion of the final match the closing awarding ceremonies were  hosted.

We hope that such an impressive list of participants of this sitting volleyball festival will become a tradition, and the next Open Cup of Moscow will bring more positive emotions to the audience and more experience to participants!
