From 10-12 June teams of Latvian entrepreneurs gathered in “Lejastiezumi” near Usmas Lake, where already the 4th Entrepreneur Sports Games took the place, organized by the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) and the Employers’ Confederation of Latvia (ECL). For two days Latvian entrepreneurs competed for the Most Sportive Company title, among them also SONORA team, which won the high 6th place out of 50 teams in overall standings.
The Entrepreneur Sports Games are special by the fact, that in two days of competition many non-traditional (team relays, throwing of rings etc.) and classical types of sports (football, streetball, handball, floorball, volleyball, orienteering) are organized; therefore, especially exciting and sportive atmosphere is in the air. Participants can take part in individual or team disciplines. In order to determine which the most sportive company is, all results in all disciplines are summarized in overall standings. Such Latvian companies as Lattelecom, Liepājas papīrs, Nordea Bank, Latvijas Dzelzceļš, RISEBA etc. were represented in these Sports Games.
SONORA team participated in the Entrepreneur Sports Games for the first time, represented by almost 40 employees. Although weather conditions were not the best – strong wind and rain – our athletes didn’t afraid to participate in various disciplines – football, volleyball, handball, floorball, streetball, folk’s ball, orienteering, tug of war, team relays, individual sports etc. SONORA team achieved very good results in all disciplines, also winning couple of medals – 3rd place in Streetball MIX group and the high 1st place in the Great team relay. In overall standings SONORA won the respectable 6th position among 50 competing teams behind such large companies as Latvijas Dzelzceļš, Lattelecom and Liepājas papīrs. We are proud of our employees, who proved, that their daily routine involves not only logistics, but also active sports.
We want to thank LCCI and ECL, especially the General Director of ECL Līga Meņģelsone for the great atmosphere and hearty reception at these sports games.
