At 10 a.m. on June 16, 2018, the university delegation from Maritime State University named after admiral G.I. Nevelskoi and the Chinese team communicated with each other through the game at the stadium. The players of Chinese team are students from many colleges and universities all over the country who came here to participate in the rugby game at the Third World University American Football Championship.
Chen Siyu, the Chinese chief coach, first explained the basic offensive tactics of rugby to the Russian delegation and demonstrated the standard pass in American Football. The Russian college students watched carefully, and after careful study, they were all eager to have a try. Ivan, a Russian student, volunteered to finish the first pass under the guidance of Chinese players. Chen Siyu patiently corrected his mistake and helped him finish the standard pass. Afterwards, the Chinese team and the Russian university students carried out one to one pass practice, because some Russian college students were very good at Chinese, so there was no language barrier in the communication with the Chinese college students. We can feel a harmonious atmosphere. After the guidance and co-training of the Chinese players, the Russian college students have greatly improved the skills in many aspects, including the standardization of service, the proficiency of the competition rules and the cooperation of the tactical coordination. Finally, the Chinese team members and the members of the Russian university delegation have carried out a real battle.
Through this exchange, Russian university students not only truly felt the charm of American football, but also established a deep friendship with Chinese university students. Alexander, the Russian team leader, said they gained a lot through this exchange with Harbin University of Commerce. He not only watched the world class football game, but also accepted the guidance of the Chinese team members. They were greatly honored to be here and wished the Chinese team achieve good results in the following games!
