On the day of the open tournament 19 athletes-students, staff, alumni of Lomonosov Moscow state university (MSU), other Moscow universities and students from China participated. This event is originally dedicated in memory of the Hiroshima Nagasaki Atomic bomb victims of 1945, after the United States air force bombed the two cities during 6-9 August of the same year.
