Rosneft’s Spartakiade has become a positive tradition for promoting closer cooperation between the Sochi 2014 General Partner’s numerous teams. A Summer Spartakiade has been held annually since 2005. Winter competitions have been held this year for the first time. Summer Spartakiade award ceremony was held in the Olympic Winter Games capital. Over 700 sportsmen and sportswomen representing the associated companies made up 17 teams and took part in the final stage of the competitions, which included eight sports events: basketball, volleyball, weight sport, tug-of-war, indoor soccer, ping-pong, chess, and track and field races. Competitions were held in six towns across Russia – from Tuapse to Uzhno-Sakhalinsk – and saw 18, 000 people entering, reaffirming the massive scale of all Rosneft’s sports events and activities.
