About a week ago in Moscow, Nike held the invitational Heli Park Rail Jam with a mock chopper amongst other stuff to jib on hosted and judged by Denis Leontyev. It was a sort of continuation to the #playrussian advert with Denis & Kobe Bryant. The event emphasized #playrussian and tried motivate the Russian public that live in such a cold and snowy nation to go out and play. In -20 temps, Russia’s best jibbers came out to do battle. It was great show in a this rising new scene in a nation that holds massive potential. #playrussian
