The flag of the Russian Sambo Federation was raised on September 16 on the two summits of Mount Elbrus – the highest mountain in Europe. Members of the expedition in support of the II President’s Sambo Cup in Manchester reached the western and eastern summits. Strong winds, temperatures of -30 and an elevation of 5,621 meters didn’t stop members of the Organizing Committee of the President’s Cup Leo Malim and Alexander Kuznetsov, scientist-astronaut Fedor Yurchikhin, President of the Kabardino-Balkaria Mountaineering Federation Abdul Khalim Elmezov and Polish mountaineering instructor Michał Parocki from raising the flag on the highest mountain peak in Europe.
