For the first time in history - SAMBO for the cadets!

Last weekend a European Open SAMBO Championship among cadets (youths (m-w) 15-16 years old) took place in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, for the first time in history.

There are some figures about this event: 200 sportsmen, 15 participating countries, 3000 audience and 2 competition days in order to play 20 sets of medals among youth (m-w).

“The first” – first, erste, prima, primero. This word sounds challenging, impertinently and positively in all the world languages. An occasion that takes place for the first time is always perceived with a breakthrough and new frontiers. SAMBO competitions in Tallinn are this case.

SAMBO is a type of sports where children begin training already as early as they are 5-6 years of age. Of course, by the age of 15 both children themselves and their parents and trainers that deposit money and time in their kids and students desire to hear the ringing of the won medals and to celebrate the first international victories.

The European SAMBO Federation which is engaged in development of SAMBO in Europe didn’t keep children, their parents and trainers waiting. In 2012 Tallinn has become an experimental playground for international cadet SAMBO, a successful playground that has fully justified itself.

Of course, all SAMBO fans in Tallinn will remember passion, emotionality and thoroughgoingness that flew in the air of the Estonian sports centre “Kalev”. Absence of longtime doubts and huddles of tactical fighting, which is not always clear for the audience, are what makes the children’s SAMBO that fascinating.

In the end the team Championship of these cadet competitions among youth (m) was won in the thick of intense fighting by the team of Georgia, the Belarusian team was second and the Russian team was at the third line of the final team protocol. The first team place among youth (w) was won by the Russian SAMBO fighters, the second place took the Belarusian sportswomen and Ukraine was at the third place.
