26 May 2016 Sergei Grishin

In an interview to the FIAS´s site a smiling and positive guest from Sri Lanka told about his hopes and impressions of this continental tournament:

"I will start tomorrow, doing sport sambo for men in the weight category of up to 74 kg. What can I say about Turkmenistan? This is a splendid country, very friendly people, very good atmosphere and a great arena. For our team this start is a good contribution to the development of sambo in our country, and a great opportunity to show off and all that we are capable of. We are really insanely excited about this opportunity and will try to perform well.

This is my first appearance at the continental level, before that I only participated in competitions at the national level. At the national championships, I’ve played four times, and now it is time to perform at the Asian Championship. Of course, I dream of gold, and only the first place would be the best gift for me. And I hope to climb to the highest step of the podium in Ashgabat tomorrow".
