Video: the biggest release of pigeons in the history of Romania

The first race of the 2012 Romanian season had the biggest number of pigeons in a single release in the history of Romanian pigeon sports: 42,800 pigeons. It was a provincial race in the biggest province of Romania, Prahova.

Because of the wide area of the province, the results were split into three parts (with distances between 150-200 km). The biggest winner was Cosmin Olteanu who won the first 3 places and also had the three pigeons with the highest velocity. Just 2 weeks earlier, the Romanian PIPA agent Dinu Mihai visited this champion and he was very confident for the new season.
