Sberbank Europe achieves one of its best results at winter Sberbankiada 2018 Represented by four athletes, Sberbank Europe has won three silver medals at this year’s winter Sberbankiada in Sochi, Russia. The annual event promoting sports and a healthy lifestyle was founded by Sberbank almost three decades ago. Today, the event is visited by athletes from the entire banking group.

Oliver Kavcic (first round: 24:70 sec; second round:  25:72 sec) from Sberbank Serbia and Ondrej Falta (24:85 sec; 25:75 sec) from Sberbank Czech Republic showed top performance in their age categories and bring home two silver medals in giant ski slalom (500m). Thomas Wutzel from Sberbank Europe AG in Vienna scored second in snowboard slalom, 500m (37:00 sec; 38:47 sec). It is one of the best results of the athletes from Sberbank Europe, who have been participating in the traditional sports event every year since the acquisition of Volksbank International in 2012.

The opening ceremony of winter Sberbankiada 2018 took place at the Shayba Arena at Sochi Olympic Park last Monday and was attended by ten Olympic and world champions, including figure skater Alexei Yagudin and star ice hockey goaltender Vladislav Tretiak.
