More than 220 sambists representing 17 clubs took part in the Occitania Region Cup in Saint-Jean-de-Vedas (south of France). This tournament has become a qualifying stage for participation in the France Championship, which will be held in February next year. In the coming weeks, similar qualifying competitions will be organized in other regions: Upper France, Ile-de-France and Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur.



The tournament among the cadets, dedicated to the memory of the Armenian king Varazdat, the winner of the ancient Olympic Games, was held on November 18-19 in Yerevan. More than 100 young athletes from different parts of Armenia took part in the competition. The purpose of the tournament is to develop the patriotic spirit of children, to identify the strongest athletes among the cadets for further training of samboists for performances on world arenas and to strengthen cooperation with various sports organizations.
