"This is great success for us, a result of two years' work," said the coach of the champions Boris Yankov. The 16th Varna Universiade began with the winning of a historic title for the Volleyball team of Medical University - Varna. The players of the former ace of Black Sea - BASK Boris Yankov achieved four games - four victories and deservedly triumphed in the competition. The medics prevailed over the hosts from the University of Economics with 3:0, the game against the Technical University finished 3:1, against the Naval Academy 3:2, and against Varna Free University 3:0.
"This is great success for us, the result of two years' work. It was 2013 when we assembled the team. We trained really hard and put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into it." Not for a single moment did I doubt the success of this team, given the full support and excellent work conditions, provided by the Rector of the University Prof. Krasimir Ivanov, the president of our team Prof. Negrin Negrev, as well as all the employees of the University. On behalf of the team I would like to dedicate this title to the head of the Department of Sports Zhulieta Videnova. Personally to me, this is the greatest success. I do not want to underestimate my victories as a player, which are quite a few. On the court, however, you yourself have the power to change things, but here you must be able to convey your knowledge to a team and make the players believe in you and do what you want them to do on the course. This is priceless for me! I saw a part of myself in every one of the boys on the court. I thank them all!"- said the coach of the champions Boris Yankov.
