Evgeny Severgin is also the President of the Voronezh Fakel Football Club, ‘Torch’, which meant that holding the burning Olympic torch in his hand was particularly symbolic.
“Participation in the relay gave me purely positive emotions, and allowed me to feel that I was actually part of the great sport festival of the Olympics. It was a pleasure to see so many Voronezh citizens supporting the relay, including lots of children. I’m sure that even our youngest citizens will remember this day for a long time”, said Evgeny as he shared his impressions, following the relay.
The Managing Director of the Nizhny Novgorod Energy Retail Company, Vasily Sitdikov, also took part in the Olympic Torch Relay in Nizhny Novgorod.
