International Student Team Ranks Second at MAI Rugby Cup

18 December 2017

Rugby competitions were held at the Moscow Aviation Institute. Five strongest teams from MAI came together in the battle for the Cup-2017. A squad of students from Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Egypt managed to take second place.

Our university has long been known for its strong rugby teams, — head coach Victor Khromenkov commented, — in 2013 we ranked third at European Universities Rugby 7’s Championship in Sofia, Bulgaria; but in 2014 we won the European Students Rugby Cap in Tallinn, Estonia.

Rugby is very popular in Malaysia, each of us started playing at the age of 13, — Adib Haziq Bin Alias said, — and I’m glad that here in Moscow we can continue playing it.

We congratulate:
