Lukas Klok have visited school No.37
Neftekhimik defenseman Lukas Klok have visited school No.37.
Lukas said that he started playing hockey at age of four. His grandfather put him on skates on the ice of a frozen lake in Czech Republic. Lukas was part of Vitkovice team and played at the Winter Olympics for his National Team.
The children had a great chance to watch a cartoon about hockey rules, players’ positions and roles of players in hockey. Lukas showed hockey equipment, in particular a helmet, chest protector and gloves.
«The most important advice I can give to young athletes is to study in school. A career can quickly end due to an injury, so you can’t rely only on sports», – said Lukas.
The children got a present – tickets for upcoming Neftekhimik game on November 28.
Viktorya Burmistrova, the teacher at school No. 37:
– That was a great and useful lesson! Especially for kids who are interested in hockey. Some of children play hockey at Neftekhimik hockey school.
Timur Gazeyev, the student of school No. 37:
– I saw Lukas at hockey; we often go with the team to cheer for Neftekhimik.
Lukas Klok, Neftekhimik defenseman:
– I hope the children enjoyed our hockey lesson. They asked good questions, there is something to remember. For the first time I was at a Russian school, I was a little worried because my Russian is not that good. I hope everyone understood me.
