The Tournament website has published the official photo album of the Eighth Gazprom Neft Cup. The unique full-colour publication gives a full account of all the competition’s twists and turns, the passions and vivid emotions of all those who took part in Europe’s largest junior ice-hockey championship, the joy of victory and the bitterness of defeat.
The album includes the best pictures of the future hockey stars who appeared at the Tournament. Over a few days, in the two Tournament host cities of Omsk and Minsk, these talented boys could sample the atmosphere of major senior tournaments. The vivid moments were captured by the best photo reporters, who cover world-class sports events, including Kontinental Hockey League games and international hockey championships.
Andrei Golovanov’s photo portfolio includes several winter and summer Olympic Games (Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010, and others), world championships and world cups in various sports.
