PV GAS men’s and women’s teams both made an impressive debut, which is one of the beautiful surprises of tug of war, when showing a determined and skillful team, with a smooth and unified combination, making this type of sport a success. This collective sport is noticed and appreciated. In the end, the tug of war “unlocked” 1 silver medal for men and 1 bronze for women for PV GAS.
