Athletes and volunteers from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Pakistan have created a word KORESH using balloons. The main purpose of the action was to attract public attention to Koresh as a kind of martial arts based on the purest principles of wrestling, and also to demonstrate commitment to this sport.
– We have designed letters from athletes holding balloons in their hands. And afterwards have let the balloons into the sky. It was very beautiful … – athletes from Pakistan said in their video speech.
The final result of all these flash mob actions in different states became a word KORESH which has united all counties. In Russia, which was an initial organizer of the unusual flash mob more than 50 volunteers from youth sports schools have constructed the entire word. The action was held in Kazan park – Gorky-Ometevsky Forest.
Before the balloons have floated into the sky the visitors of the flash mob had a chance to see the master class performed by multiple champions in Koresh wrestling – Marat Kupkenov and Ilmir Kamaleev and afterwards to try to wrestle themselves.
– The atmosphere was great; we liked the performance and the flash mob as well. We do not even know what’s more, – volunteers admit.
The flash mob action has attracted attention of journalists from local and international media.
The organizers of international flash mob and master class were International Belt Wrestling Koresh Federation and Russian Koresh Federation.
