Ukrainian students and cadets at national championships qualified for the World Championships

Two Ukrainian championships – among students and cadets – were held from October 28 to 30 in Kharkiv. Nearly 500 participants from 20 regions of Ukraine gathered for the tournaments, which were held in the sports complex at Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University.

"The level of competition was high, which isn't surprising, because the results of the competitions were used for drafting the teams that will soon be competing in the world university and cadets championships," says Vadym Rogach, President of the National SAMBO Federation of Ukraine. "The entry list was also up to par, both in number and quality. Students from 40 higher education institutions took part in the university championships. This was good, because young people were fighting for medals, and we didn't see so-called "eternal students" on the mat. Medalists of the recent World Youth and Junior Championships also raised the standard of fighting."

Mr. Rogach admitted that he didn't expect to see so many participants – there were about three hundred – at the cadets tournament.

"That's great, and it means we're on the right track in promoting SAMBO for children and youth. I should add that we're doing everything we can to attract the younger generation to our sport in many regions. One of the leaders is Kharkiv Region, which has a solid representation in the national teams for different age categories. The home teams rightfully won in the team standings at the country's university and cadets championships," Rogach said.
