Yesterday, June 18, in the sports and concert complex named after Heydar Aliev in Baku the freestyle wrestling competitions ended. Participants and spectators of the tournament left the hall around 22 pm, and at midnight the workers of the complex started to transform the platform to be fit for sambo.

The installation process was held at night and completed as early as 4 am. For wrestling the organizing committee chose lilac while for sambo the color green was chosen. Looking at the the photo made towards the end of the installation process you can get a rough impression of how the room will look.
