250 Businessmen Competed for 15 Sports Cups

250 businessmen took part in the Fourth Business Leaders Olympics, which was held in the Anglo-American School of Sofia. The managers of some of the biggest companies in Bulgaria faced each other on the sports field, competing in 15 different Olympic and non-Olympic disciplines, including football, volleyball, tennis, chess, darts, backgammon, and many others.

 

For a fourth consecutive year the annual sports event of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum attracted  companies like Overgas, Curtis/Balkan, Schenker, TNT, Siemens, Sofiyska Voda and many others, who demonstrated competitive spirit and outstanding sportsmanship.

 

The Olympics football cup was won by the team of Penkov, Markov & Partners in an intensive game with the Overgas team. In the volleyball competition the unquestioned leaders were the representatives of Siemens with its two teams that won the first and the third place. On the basketball field the mixed team of Siemens and Overgas was the best and left behind on second and third place the representatives of AG Capital and Forton International. Among the winners in the "quiet" sports was Kalinka Dimitrova from Schenker in backgammon, Stoyan Kuzmanov from Siemens in chess, Ivo Geshev from TNT in darts and Silvia Karadjova from Curtis/Balkan and Liubomir Georgiev in cards.  The sports cup in badminton went to Liubomir Todorov from Corporation Development, while his colleague Svetlozar Panov was recognized as the best in the tennis tournament.

 

The participants in the Olympics had the chance to make their first salsa steps under the guidance of dance club "Costeli de Studio". Another pleasant surprise was provoked by the afternoon raffle, where more than 100 gifts were given by Allied Pickfords, TNT, Todoroff Winery, Radisson SAS Grandhotel, Xerox, AIMS Human Capital, Overgas, Bulgarian Newspaper Group, Oriflame, Microsoft and Rubella. BBLF team still has some gifts left in the office under the ticket numbers: 554 and 621. Please contact our office, if you have these tickets.

The Anglo-American School of Sofia was the kind host of the event.
