As we approach the New Year’s holiday, the International Sambo Federation (FIAS) and the International Sambo Fan Club held an I Love Sambo children’s art contest. Children and young people aged 5 to 18 took part in the contest to tell about their love for Sambo though pictures or crafts. More than 70 works by children from various countries around the world were published in comments to the article about the contest posted on the FIAS website.

Today, on December 25, Fedor chose the winners of the FIAS children’s contest a few hours before his departure to Japan to fight against Jaideep Singh. The legendary Sambo wrestler chose works that showed your love for Sambo best of all.

“I really liked all the art entered in the contest. I want to tell all the participants – well done! Picking a winner was incredibly difficult, and together with FIAS, we decided to increase the number of prizes from three to seven. I also decided to give a small New Year’s gift to all the children who took part in the contest: they’ll each get a poster with my autograph,” Fedor said.
