The closing ceremony of the Games was very big. And it is nice that the army team became an integral part of such a grand celebration. The servicemen of the Central Sports Club of the Army took the lead in the first days of the tournament, increasing their sporting strength with each passing day. This is a great merit of the coaching staff of CSKA, the leadership of the Ministry of Defense and the army club. The games flew like one day, they fulfilled their main goal - to unite soldiers of different countries through sport.
