The final of "Big Fan Cup” project, competition among cheerleading teams of the institutes took place in the gym of North-Caucasus Federal University. Student Council led by the head of the centre of student government, Elena Sonina was the organizer and curator of the event. Competitions among cheerleaders began in February, this year and there were several stages. There was a special award for the winner – trip to Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Results of the competition were announced last Friday.

The final of the competitions included three phases. "Cheer” contest required to greet the audience in an active and unusual manner, using chants as well. In the nomination called "Cheer-dance” one needed to show ability to dance and do various tricks. An active pause, the nomination called "Game” was also one of contests: the athletes should engage the audience in a performance.

There was a great interest to the event. Besides the fans sitting in the stands First Pro-Rector Dmitri Sumskoy, Pro-Rector for Educational Activities Vladimir Magin, Pro-Rector for Administrative Activity Nadezhda Akchurina, Chief of Department for Educational Activities Oleg Lyashko, Chairman of Student Council of NCFU Ilya Semenov, Director of "Maximum” modern dance studio Elena Garyanina, President of Basketball Federation of Stavropol region, Master of Sports of the USSR Dmitri Lokhansky and others attended it. Almost all of them were members of the jury, who should estimate the cheerleaders’ performances.

It is difficult to choose words to describe what happened in the hall during competitions. Each institute prepared for the performance in a creative manner and showed the maximum of its opportunities to the audience and the jury. In addition to good choreographic abilities the participants showed their sense of humour and even actor’s abilities. The students quickly got a feedback from the hall. Interactive communication was interesting to everyone. Spectators not only played together with cheerleaders, but also participated in performances, showing their dancing talents.

The event lasted for about three hours, and someone hardly regretted he was present on the cheerleading holiday at NCFU. The jury had been discussing the results for a long time, and at last three prize winners were announced as follows:

  • 3rd place – Institute of Information Technologies and Telecommunications;
  • 2nd place – Institute of Life Sciences;
  • 1st place – Institute of Pedagogics.

Next winter the students of Institute of Pedagogics will go to Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. After announcement of the results they were very happy. We congratulate them on the victory and we remember the Olympic Greed: the most important thing is not to win but to participate. It is also important that everybody, both participants and spectators, enjoyed the performances.
