USS Mount Whitney’s and Georgian Coast Guard teams played soccer and basketball matches (October 13)

“Even if you don’t speak the same language, you can still enjoy a friendly sports game!  Crew from the USS Mount Whitney docked in Batumi took on the Georgian Coast Guard in a soccer match and played against Georgian Maritime Academy Students in a basketball game today.  Congrats to the Georgian teams–they won both games!  Luckily the matches were also an opportunity for American sailors and their Georgian colleagues to get to know one another and build lasting partnerships.”
