SE RAW – second place in the final ranking of the Workers’ Spartakiad


Five prizes were added by the female teams of the State Enterprise “Radioactive Waste” (SE RAW) in the history of the 15th National Workers’ Spartakiad. With two other first prizes – the male tennis team and the mixed petanque teams, and also thanks to the other 8 second and 9 thirds places, the sport delegation of the Enterprise won the second position in the final ranking.
In the days of Spartakiad, the SERAW female volleyball team has consolidated its leading position in the last years by winning the finals of the disciplines Beach volleyball and Volleyball. The first places were won also by the women in the Table tennis and Darts disciplines. The ladies in the “sports shooting” were also excellent, where they won the championship for the first time (and third – the second shooting team). The second place in the female Tug of war discipline counts also as an achievement considering the very close match with the winners of the Kozloduy NPP.  The performance of the male and female teams in the swimming disciplines, where SERAW participates only for a second year, was also worthy.
The National Workers Spartakiad with an international participation is organized for the 15th consecutive year by the National Federation of Power Engineers (NFPE) of the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria. The event took place between 6-10 September 2017. Teams from 16 energy companies competed in 16 disciplines. The Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant took the first place; third place was won by The Electricity System Operator.
“The goal of the Spartakiad is to help promoting the sport on a wide basis as movement, culture, education, health and entertainment among those working in the energy industry and the related branches, and developing  their emotional motivation and creating lasting sports habits”,  so justify the NFPE organizers the  massive sport event.
