Спорт бывает разным. В Южно-Сахалинск на игры «Дети Азии» приехала команда из Кувейта 🇰🇼 В 3-х матчах она пропустила 156 голов! Бедные дети. Вот лишь один фрагмент их сражения с коньками, льдом и клюшками. Внимание на вратаря, который даже самостоятельно встать не может. #южносахалинск #детиазии #сахалин2019 #sakhalin2019 #кувейт

The teams of Sakhalin, the Siberian Federal District, the Far Eastern Federal District and Japan became the rivals of Kuwait. Each of the teams scored several dozen goals for the children from the Middle East.

Kuwaiti coach Bojan Tsidarevich told reporters that after the first two defeats hockey players did not want to go on the ice. But Sakhalin support helped: locals and volunteers started coming to the stadium with Kuwait flags and posters with the #GoKuwait hashtag . Flashmob with the same hashtag launched in social networks.

As a result, teenagers from Kuwait finished the tournament in last place, but thanked the audience for their support. Athletes received from the organizers of the tournament medals – “For the will to win.”
