VKG for arts and sports

Social responsibility

"Behind each accomplishment in sports there are hidden tens and hundreds of times of pushing oneself to self-discipline and 100% of commitment. My major titles, the support of the Estonian people and the sponsors have justified this commitment and have given me the incentive to keep the Estonian flag up high in the world“.

Olympic silver medal winner, Heiki Nabi

SINCE 2005 VKG has been the LEAD SPONSOR of the Estonian Wrestling Union.
