Hockey players Pavel Bure and Yuri Babenko supported the national team of Kuwait at the "Children of Asia" games

12:34 February 14, 2019

The legendary Russian striker Pavel Bure supported the youth team of Kuwait, which won the audience of the first winter international sports games "Children of Asia".

Team members first skated three weeks ago. At the games they lost four games with a total score of 0: 219. Sakhalin residents decided to support the national team and staged a flash mob. The inhabitants of the island came to the last match meeting of the team with posters, and also launched a special hashtag #GoKuwait on social networks. Before the match with Japan, the athletes were also presented with the medal "For the Will to Win".

– Well done, that are engaged in hockey, let them try, and everything will work out. Hello to Kuwait, – commented Pavel Bure.

Pavel Bure played for American clubs from 1999 to 2003. In 2012 he was included in the NHL Hall of Fame. The athlete played for the national teams of the USSR and Russia, became the world champion and was the captain of the Olympic team at the Games in Nagano-1998.

The Russian youth hockey team coach, two-time winner of the Gagarin Cup in the Dynamo Moscow team, Yuri Babenko, joined the flash mob. He also wished good luck to the young players of the Kuwait national team.

– I am Yuri Babenko, a former professional hockey player. This is an appeal for the Kuwait team. Hockey is a real male sport, and you are great guys and clever ones that came to this tournament and held it to the end. Without defeats there are no big wins. Everything you will have in the future will be good, – said the famous athlete.

Competitions for the national team of Kuwait have already ended. Today, athletes are sent home. However, the games became an incentive for them to continue. Kuwaitis plan to continue training and return to "Children of Asia" in a few years, reports IA, citing the press service of the Games Directorate.
