GMCS participated in the Olimpic torch relay in Yekaterinburg

GMCS, a member of the MAYKOR, took part in the Olympic torch relay, which took place on December 14, 2013 in Yekaterinburg.

GMCS was honored to carry the Olympic flame in two cities: Magadan and Yekaterinburg. The relay December 14 was divided into three stages, each one had a length of about 20 kilometers. The fire was carried by 300 torchbearers.

Oleg Lysov, Vice president of GMCS – one of the torchbearers, shared his impressions: "The Ural capital met us with good winter frost, but it could hardly be seen due to the warm welcome of city residents, who came out to the streets to support the torchbearers. We decided that we would establish the torch in our Moscow office to remind employees about the participation of our company in such a significant event as the Olympic torch relay".

The Olympic Torch Relay in Russia, the most ambitious in the history of the Winter Games, has been going on for more than two months. The relay will complete with the lighting Olympic flame at the opening of the Olympics in Sochi on February 7.
