UrFU cheer team Phenomenon places fourth in cheerleading championship

Ural Federal University's cheerleading team Phenomenon placed fourth in last week's World Cheerleading Cup in Thailand.

The UrFU team received the top prize in the competition's "Cheer Mix" and "Group Mix" categories, though a cheerleading group from a Japanese university received the gold medal.

Supervised by UrFU cheerleading team alumni Maxim Tyutikov, Dennis Dobrovolsky and Poliarush Violetta, the team performed five different routines to original music recorded at Re-Play Records in the Sverdlovsk region.

This year marks the seventh annual World Cheerleading Cup held at the Impact Muang arena in Bangkok.
