A. Kharlampiev Memorial Sambo World Cup: “Friendship” Shortly Before the Start

The World Cup starts tomorrow, and today in the traditional tournament location where it was held in 1980 for the first time, in the sport arena Druzhba (”Friendship” in Russian), work on arrangement is humming. The work is in calm, and most importantly, homely atmosphere. It cannot be otherwise. The name of the hall dictates its rules. 

This way the hall looked after the platform was installed and before the mats were laid. 

This way the mats are laid in the arena under the guidance of the Commercial Director of the All-Russian Sambo Federation Maxim Neganov. 

And they are even fixed. 

This is exactly what is in the heart and in the soul of all of us. 


The representatives of Start Company, host broadcaster of the tournament, reel out the cables and arrange the cameras, which tomorrow will show everyone worldwide the details of sambo wrestle at the World Cup.

Tomorrow, and during three days, this sport arena will look differently. Come to Druzhba sport arena and enjoy sambo or visit the FIAS website: sambo-fias.org and watch sambo.
