On behalf of the European Sambo Federation and on my own behalf I express my sincerest congratulations on the permanent recognition of Sambo by the International Olympic Committee.
Sambo has become an Olympic sport. We all have been waiting impatiently for this moment and today is a great day for all sambo community.
I hope that by common efforts we will develop our sport further and it will be included in the Olympic program.
