On July 20, the qualifying regional stage of the Cadets` Hop-Off Competition as part of the Race of Heroes` Competition was held for the first time at the naval proving ground in Vladivostok. Nine teams of higher military schools and civil universities of the region went to the start of the Competition. The cadets and students had to work their way through the most difficult route, full of artificial and natural obstacles: a sloping wall, a vertical wall with ropes, a river crossing, underground tunnels, barbed wire obstacles, suspension bridges, a series of monkey bars and what not. Our team of navigation cadets from Company 16 started the fifth and showed the seventh result at the finish. The cadets of military schools of the Ministry of Defense took the first six places. It should be noted that their teams consisted of candidates for master of sports and first-graders in officer all-around and other military-applied sports.
