Sergey Mashchenko (2nd Year student, Institute of Education & Social Sciences, NCFU) has brought home gold medal that he won at the Shotokan Karate World Championship held in Poland.

This is not his first success – Sergey is 5-time World Champion and 7-time European Champion; besides, he has been 12 times champion of Russia. Even though experienced, he had some hard time while competing in Poland – having twelve fights in one day is far from a piece of cake.

-We had no time to have a rest, it’s all about emotions and adrenaline. And there is always some kind of nervousness when you are there at a contest, yet once you are going to a fight you are out to win. All the contestants were good but I was one head above them all, so to say, this is why I won. With all this I am showing what Russia is up to. And today I am the best sportsman among those in the category of 18-20 years old, - Sergey was quoted as saying.

Another two students of NCFU went to the contest in Poland as well – Alexander Rud won Bronze in the Individual Kumite while Kazbek Mutaliev got a similar award in the Team Kumite.
