14-15th March 2015 in the North Capital of Russia took place the 10th anniversary Northen Palmira Cup. This cup was host by a big organizing team under the leadership of Mr. Oleg Krivaryk - the President of Saint Petersburg Taekwon-Do Federation.
To the Northen Palmira Cup came this time 502 competitors from 7 Russian districts and 6 countries such as Armenia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Byelorussia, Latvia and Russia.
The opening ceremony was held on the second day of the Cup. The honourable guests during the ceremony were Mister Youry Avdeev, the chairman of Sport Committee of Saint Petersburg and Master Lazoros Tsilfidis, who came especially for this occasion directly from Siberia Cup that started a day earlier.
The chairman of the umpire committee was Mr. Sergey Smishliaev also from Saint Petersburg.
Right after the opening ceremony a match started between black belt competitors from different countries. During the break all spectators had a pleasure to be entertained by one of the very good and professional dancing groups of the city of Saint Petersburg.
Unquestionably, this anniversary cup was best organized than ever and we are sure that a new legendary Cup begins its history and will attract numerous competitors in the nearest future.
