Among the employees of the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia in the Chechen Republic, crossfit competitions were held, including a set of exercises for strength, endurance, coordination and speed. The sporting event was timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

Power all-around included pulling a 24-kilogram kettlebell to head level, transferring two slopes of 77-millimeter sleeves at a distance of 40 meters and winding them up using the “figure eight” method, tilting the tire from KamAZ at a distance of 10 meters and hitting it with a sledgehammer, re-edging the tire with using a sledgehammer, transporting a 50-kg dummy at a distance of 30 meters. After completing these exercises, the athlete entered the 10-meter finish line, towing the UAZ “Patriot” vehicle with the help of a cable.

But that’s not all: EMERCOM employees went through stages in combat gear, connected to breathing apparatus. The total weight of the load was more than 20 kilograms.

The tests were not easy for the firefighters, but none of them left the race. In general, the employees demonstrated a high level of physical fitness and endurance, – said Rustam Arsanukaev, deputy head of the department for organizing firefighting and carrying out emergency rescue operations of the emergency department of the Chechen Republic.

The fans actively worried about their comrades, constantly cheering and supporting them.

The jury members evaluated the speed and correctness of the exercises. For each violation, penalty minutes were added to the time. According to the results of the competition, the best result was shown by Lom-Ali Kagirov, an employee of the fire and rescue unit No. 6 for the protection of the city of Argun.

– CrossFit can rightfully be considered our professional sport, because the employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations experience more stress on large fires than in these competitions, and besides, you have to work in fire and smoke, – said the winner of the competition.
