This is a powerful, powerful project that has united sambo athletes throughout Russia. Competitions take place in many cities, and Sevastopol, of course, cannot stand aside. Today we are creating all the conditions so that as many children as possible can come to this truly national sport. This is our national struggle, with our ideology, with our understanding and philosophy of life. Therefore, the fact that you chose this type of struggle is very correct.– the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the head of the city.
More than 150 sambo wrestlers — boys and girls aged 14 to 16 years — from the Krasnodar Territory, Rostov Region, Astrakhan Region, Bryansk, Novosibirsk, Moscow, Yaroslavl, Anapa, Kherson and Zaporozhye Regions, the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol competed for medals.
Today our main task is to attract young people to sports. Sambo, the art of self-defense, not attack, instills in children courage, responsibility, and moral and volitional qualities, which may later be useful in service in the Ministry of Defense, the National Guard, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The training we try to give to our youth is our future.says Federation Council Senator Sergei Kolbin.
All-Russian competitions dedicated to the memory of Hero of the Soviet Union D.S. Odintsov, are held in Sevastopol for the 48th time and date back to 1975.
The tournament was first all-Union, then became All-Russian. The competitions are qualifying for the Championship of the Southern Federal District and the Championship of Russia,” said the president of the regional public organization “Sambo Federation of the City of Sevastopol” Mikhail Plis.
