Today, in the Northern Fleet, a sport competition for command profile officers called “Commander starts” began.

In the universal sports and training complex “Start” in Severomorsk, a competition ceremony was held, in which more than 70 military personnel from command personnel from platoon commanders to commanders of fleet formations take part.

The competition was opened by the commander of the Northern Fleet, Hero of Russia, Vice Admiral Alexander Moiseev. The fleet commander instructed the athletes to fight hard.

For the first time, women-military men of the command echelon participate in the “Commander starts” in the composition of the teams.

Within three days, officers will pass the standards for strength, speed, endurance and accuracy. All exercises are taken from the manual on physical training in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Participants of the competition will have to show the best results in pulling up on the crossbar, bending-unbending arms in a lying position, in running, as well as in exercises of military sports all-around – shooting from a Makarov pistol and swimming. The final stage of the “Commander’s Starts” will be the track and field relay.

Commander launches have been taking place in the Northern Fleet for the sixth year in a row and have already become traditional. Their participants, who have shown the best sports results, will go to defend the honor of the Northern Fleet at the All-Army Competitions, which will be held in November in Moscow.
