We would like for every child who has overcome an oncological disease to have a chance to participate in the Winners Games 2018, no matter which region of Russia or foreign country the child is from. That is why, during the year prior to the actual event in Moscow, regional tournaments are being organized all over Russia and abroad. We are opening registration for such tournaments for the Winners Games 2018 and welcome and encourage local charities and non-profits to support and sponsor children with oncological diseases to give them a chance to participate.
In the evening of June 4, five hundred participants of the Winners Games, along with their parents, team leaders and fans gathered for the closing ceremony to celebrate the victory and say goodbye until next year when the celebration will resume with new winners.
The quietest and noisiest competitions of the Winners Games – chess and football – were taking place at the same time. Fans flooded the stands around the football field and were screaming and stomping their feet, while the players were running up a storm between the two goals.
This phrase players hear before the first out of five games they play in their chess round. Everyone is serious and focused. It’s so quiet here that one can hear chess pieces moved on the board and clock buttons pressed. There are no fans around – neither the parents, nor volunteers are allowed here so nobody is tempted to give hints.
