A regional sports festival dedicated to the International days of disabled people was held in Vologda. 67 people from 7 districts of the Vologda Oblast participated in the sporting event. They competed in swimming, relay race, darts, bowling and other sports.
These competitions are held annually in order to involve disabled people in sports, and also to attract the public attention to the problems of the disabled.
Students of Vologda State University, studying “Physical Education for the disabled”, volunteered to organize the festival.
The VSU volunteers had an opportunity to get hands-on experience and upgrade their skills obtained during studies.
