Results of Kvartiriada 2020
The contest of the Russian Olympic Committee “Kvartiriada 2020” has come to an end. From April 30 to May 14, its participants filmed videos on invented sports that could be practiced at home during the self-isolation regime. The jury, determining the best works, consisted of famous champions Svetlana Romashina, Evgenia Medvedeva and Nikita Nagorny.
According to the terms of the contest, the videos had to be posted on Instagram with the hashtag #Kvartiriada2020, as well as the organizer’s account @olympic_russia. Moreover, video quality was not that important – videos shot on mobile phones were equally evaluated with those shot on professional cameras. The main criteria for the jury were the novelty and originality of the ideas, as well as the creativity of the videos.
Kvartiriada 2020 was launched by the champion of the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games in break-dance Sergey Chernyshev, who gave a perfect performance of mop jumps onto the bed. Dmitry Guberniev was responsible for commenting during the opening ceremony which was broadcast live on the ROC’s official Instagram account.
The competition received a huge amount of feedback from users, including professional athletes. Figure skaters Ekaterina Bobrova and Adelina Sotnikova (Olympic champions), gymnast Vera Biryukova, Alexandra Patskevich and Alla Shishkina (synchronized swimming), and many other famous athletes, presented their new sports to the public.
The jury of the Kvartiriada, which included five-time Olympic champion Svetlana Romashina, two-time silver medallist of the Olympic Games Yevgeny Medvedev and silver medallist of the Olympic Games Nikita Nagorny, had a tough job – to determine the best top ten from around 400 videos made for this novel contest, and then award first, second and third place.
The winners are:
Family all-round from __katyuha__
