Lone Avalanche Survivor Wins Kickboxing Silver Medal

Lone Avalanche Survivor Wins Kickboxing Silver MedalThe lone survivor of an avalanche that killed six teenagers in the southern Siberian republic of Tuva last month has won a silver medal at Russia’s kickboxing championships.

Anton Salchak, 17, lost the juniors title fight to fellow Tuvan Kezhik Mongush last week, according to a statement on the regional government’s website Tuesday.

The second-place finish comes merely three weeks after Salchak and six friends, ages 14 to 18, were hit by an avalanche on March 3 on Ak-Bashtyg mountain, about six kilometers from the remote village of Mugur-Aksy.

The seven boys had climbed the mountain to plant prayer flags, a ritual meant to bring good luck, RIA Novosti reported last month.

After escaping the avalanche, Salchak alerted rescue crews, prompting a six-day search for his missing friends. The body of the sixth teenager was discovered on March 9.
