Mark Your Calendars for the Russian Cup

While the P&G Championships will be happening in Hartford, the Russians will be competing in Penza at the Russian Cup.

The competition will be held August 17-21 and will be a deciding factor on who goes to Antwerp in the fall to represent the Russian team. It won't be an easy selection, since Russia is a team knee-deep with talent.

According to an article on Penza-sport.com, some 42 women 44 men are slated to compete. Aliya Mustafina, Ksenia Afanasyeva,  Denis Ablyazin, Nicholas Kuksenko, Emin Garibov and David Bielawski will not make an appearance at the event.
