France

Pourrières Regional Cup (southern France) was held on January 19 at a local sambo club. About 50 sambo athletes of different ages took part in this tournament. The morning part of the competition was devoted to finding the strongest ones among children who ardently, sincerely and emotionally fought in one of the first competitions in their lives. Lucky winners rejoiced the heaviness of the medals won and proudly wore them on their chests. After lunch juniors and adults joined the fight. Youthful enthusiasm changed into mastery and professionalism of trained and experienced athletes who were result-oriented, and did not forget to please the audience with nice holds. This competition has become one of the stages of qualification and preparation for the France Sambo championship.
