In final of 5000 race Bashkir athlete Andrey Safronov will run for the Russian national team. He was selected to the semi-final only by time, but his group showed high results. The start is at 20.00 (MOSCOW TIME).

A team championship of foilsmen will be spent in a fencing tournament. Bashkortostan and Russia are represented by Renal Ganeev and Arthur Ahmathuzin.

At last, a final round of volleyball tournament among women starts.
