Reward from Edelweiss for champion Victor Ciobanu and his coach
Victor Ciobanu is the Moldavian who won on Sunday the gold medal at the European Greco-Roman Wrestling Championship. The Foundation of Vlad Plahotniuc “Edelweiss” supports performance and encourages such beautiful results. In gratitude for all the hard work done, Edelweiss offered the athlete a prize amounting 50,000 lei and his coach - 25,000 lei.
 
Our team shared with the Moldovan athletes the emotions experienced on Sunday and we all applauded when Victor defeated the current world champion the Russian Sergey Emelin, thus winning the gold medal. We grow inspired by such victories behind which we know that many training sessions and many sacrifices stand. That’s why we decided to go personally to congratulate Victor to the workout facility where he trains.
 
The Edelweiss Executive Director Lidia Cucos handed the voucher amounting 50,000 lei to the champion: “We have a reward for you from the Foundation of Vlad Plahotniuc “Edelweiss”. We wish you as much courage, success and achievements as possible. We are proud and thank you for wearing our flag anywhere you go in the world”. 
 
Our visit surprised Victor and made him happy at the same time. The athlete thanked us for this gesture and told us that he would continue on this path and that our support would help him buy the things he needs for the following battles:
 
“In the near future the European games are going to be held in Minsk, and soon I will start the preparations and will invest in myself, in the necessary things”. 
 
A particularly important contribution to this success made the coach Mihai Cucu. In appreciation of his effort the Foundation of Vlad Plahotniuc “Edelweiss” offered him as well 25,000 lei.
 
We once again congratulate Victor Ciobanu and his coach Mihai Cucu, but also the other Moldavian athletes who had achieved good results at the competition in Bucharest. We wish you great success in the future!
 
All talented and successful athletes have to be supported on their way and our team is always alongside those who have demonstrated that they can make of their passion a real career.
