“It is a great honor for us to host so many athletes. This year is special for us: ‘SAMBO-70’ is 50 years old. We will be glad to see all of you at our place throughout the year. I want to wish you good training and experience. I feel the power and real strength of the fighters, masters of their craft, who are now standing on the mat,” Layshev said.
Participants were also invited to join the charity event “Fighters for good” — “Boxes of Courage” and the box “Mother’s Joy”, initiated by Marianna Aliyeva, an International Class Master of Sports in SAMBO.
