Andrey Birzhin congratulated a member of Glorax Life with the title of Vice-World Champion

From August 5 to 18 in South Korea (Gwangju) the most significant competition among professional swimmers around the world in the Masters category was held – the World Aquatics Championship.

Andrey Kurnosov, a member of the Glorax Life team, not only successfully performed, but was also awarded the title of Vice-World Champion for the first time! As part of the competition, the swimmer won 9 medals of various denominations in individual heats and relay races:

100 meters, “crawl” technique – 54.10 seconds, bronze;

50 meters, “crawl” technique – 23.63 seconds, silver;

50 meters, Brass technique – 29.68 seconds, bronze;

50 meters, technique “on the back” – 28.37 seconds, silver;

Relay 4 to 50, mixed, technique “crawl” – silver;

Relay 4 to 50 combined mixed – silver.

“The performance in South Korea is one of the most difficult in my practice, because due to the time difference, I had to go out some distances without a daily sleep. In addition, complex climatic zone and local food, not suitable for high-quality recovery between performances, became evident. Despite all this, I managed to show an excellent result and for the first time to win the title of Vice-World Champion! I am grateful to the entire Glorax Life team for their support,” – Andrei Kurnosov shared his impressions of participating in the World Championship.

The founder of the Glorax Group, Andrei Birzhin, congratulated the swimmer on winning medals and a new title and wished him further, equally successful performances on the world stage.

Andrey Kurnosov has been a part of Andrei Birzhin’s Glorax Life team since 2017, and during that time he brought a lot of medals and awards to the team, including gold in the European Championship in the Masters category. At the end of last year, the “Masters” Swimming Federation recognized Andrei Kurnosov as the best swimmer in the Active skills category.
