VSMPO-AVISMA opens European level sports facility in Verkhnyaya Salda

01.07.2022 — News

A modern multi-purpose boxing club was established on the initiative and with the financial support of VSMPO-AVISMA In Verkhnyaya Salda. Its grand opening was timed to coincide with the 89th anniversary of the corporation.
Dmitry Osipov, VSMPO-AVISMA’s General Director, Oleg Zhadobin, General Director of the "Boxing Academy" sports club network, and Master of Sports in boxing Eduard Shurygin, a professional coach, congratulated the citizens on the new sports facility, RusBusinessNews reports.
"The idea to open a boxing club appeared after our guys won the grand finals of the Udarnaya Desyatka ("Hit the Bulls Eye") Challenge in Moscow. Previously, there was nowhere to train in the city, and athletes had to travel to neighboring cities. Now the boxers have a home of their own," noted the head of the titanium corporation.

"I watched your guys in Moscow and was amazed at their titanic strength and power. It's great to see the champion of the Desyatka – Ivan Solyanov. Salda really rocks! I would like to thank VSMPO-AVISMA management for keeping their word and building a modern facility for all the fans of this spectacular sport. I hope that now the ranks of boxers will be swelled by new champions," said Oleg Zhadobin and presented the club with a referee gong.

Comfortable and safe conditions for boxing classes have been created in the club's spacious rooms, which meet European standards. There is an Olympic-sized ring, punching bags and pads, as well as a special training complex. Eduard Shurygin held the first training in the new ring for Salda athletes.

Every year VSMPO-AVISMA allocates more than 160 mln rubles for sport programs. The company maintains a year-round ice-skating rink, a soccer field, a ski complex, a chess club, a swimming pool, halls for game sports, a gym, and a fitness room. Several thousand people play 12 different sports here – from chess to motor sports. Each employee's account is credited monthly with sports bonuses for free visits to corporate sports facilities. VSMPO-AVISMA employs professional coaches and instructors who work with children and adults. Throughout the year, metallurgists take part in various tournaments – from corporate to all-Russian.
