Many athletes bring to the 27th Summer Universiade 2013 in Kazan not only flags of their country, but also flags of their cities.
The Four Nations Diving Meet came to an end at the Aquatics Palace, Kazan on Sunday, December 8. The third edition of the tournament, where four diving nations - Russia, Ukraine, Italy and Germany - clashed against each other for gold medals, ended in another overwhelming victory for the Russian national team.
The Director General of the Kazan 2013 Executive Directorate, Vladimir Leonov, was named the recipient of Delovoy Kvartal magazine's Person of the Year 2013 award. The awards ceremony, where multiple trophies were given out to those who are being acknowledged for their contribution in a specific field, took place in the evening of December 6 in Kazan.
Top athletes from Germany, Russia, Italy and Ukraine will battle for top spots on the podium during the three competition days. The international tournament is held in one of the key sports facilities of the city - the Aquatics Palace.
