International SAMBO Tournament was held in Amindeo

The International SAMBO Tournament for cadets and youth was held in the Greek city of Amindeo on March 21. Athletes from Greece, Romania and North Macedonia took part in the competition.


“We conceived this tournament as a contribution to the development of new SAMBO stars. After all, participation in international competitions from an early age allows athletes to gain the necessary experience and skills to win in adult tournaments. The bouts of young sambists are particularly sincere and uncompromising. The guys think little about defense and tactics, trying to prove themselves in attack. And, of course, they are not shy about their own emotions in victory or defeat,” noted the President of the Hellenic Federation Sambo, Kurash, Chidaoba Merabi Iliadis.


According to him, for some athletes the competition in Amindeo was the first international start in their lives. Among the participants there were also those who, despite their young age, already have extensive experience in performing in various competitions.


“This tournament became a kind of “test of the pen” for our federation. We received applications to participate in the competition from many European countries, but not all of them were able to come to Greece for one reason or another. I congratulate those federations that were able to take part in the competition, and I am confident that next year the geography of our athletes will become even wider,” Iliadis added.
