On 1st June 2003 Italian village Termo di Comano welcomed the first Trout Spinning World Championship. Our national team took part in the last year World Cup too, and was at the 5th place then.
The First Russian Silver Award.
This year our team was stronger than the year before (mainly due to the development of the recently set up Russian Spinning League), and the Russian team managed to win the second place with just a slightly lower results than the Polish national team.
Our team consisted of Feodor Mukharev, Vasily Olshanikov, and Maxim Balachevtsev form St. Petersburg, Andrey Chernov from Saratov, and Mikhail Kofman from Krasnodar.
As a result in the team classification the Polish team was first, we were second, and the hosting Italian team came third. In the individual classification all the winning places were taken by the Poles, our sportsmen were on 5th, 8th, 9th, and 12th places.
All in all most sportsmen believe that our national team?s performance was very successful, which proves that the approach of the Russian spinning team is correct.
