UrFU's Phenomen-A cheer team takes home medals at all-Russian competition

Ural Federal University's Phenomen-A cheerleading team competed in the Russian championship last week, taking first place in the cheer mix portion of the competition and silver in cheer dance and bronze in the group stunts category.

The event brought together 190 teams from 27 regions in Russia--the most to ever compete in the championship.

In total, the team has brought home seven gold medals from the all-Russian competition.

The two day event began with a "minis" competition for the nine- to 12-year-old category in cheer and cheer dance categories. Juniors ages 12-16 also competed on the first day, in cheer, cheer mix, cheer dance, group stunts and group stunts mix categories. The second day included competition between participants ages 16 and older.
