The winners of Ukrainian Cup were named in Lutsk

20 March 2017 Sergei Grishin

Ukrainian Sport Sambo and Combat Sambo Cup was held on March 17-18 in Lutsk. The tournament in the capital of Volynia gathered more than 200 participants from 21 regions of the country. Following the results of the competitions, the national team, which will perform at European Sambo Championship in Minsk, was formed.

It is interesting to note, that two people got on the podium in under 68 kgs weight category: the winner of the tournament Elena Saiko and her most precious «award». Multiple winner of world and continental forums returned on the mat after the birth of her baby.

According to the hosts, this added even more emotions to the competitions, though there were plenty of them throughout the tournament. The confrontation between combat sambo wrestlers was especially furious: although the “first numbers” confirmed their status, they had to work hard.

- Sambo is a top priority among non-Olympic sport events, which are plentiful in Ukraine, - said Mikhail Rudenko, the head coach of the national team; he is, by the way, the winner of the first ever combat sambo championship. – We need to measure up constantly to our high-status, in other words, to prove our worthiness with medals at international competitions and increase the number of people, practising sambo in our country. We constantly work on it.

After Ukrainian Cup, a two-day camp for the finalists was organized at the expense of national federation. This event gave an opportunity to senior coaches to work purposefully with national team candidates.

- We worked out quite an intensive schedule that focused on applied skills and involved a series of sparrings. It is worth mentioning that this year we have slightly changed the selection system in the adult team for the main international competitions. Before European Sambo Championship there is Ukrainian Cup; as for the world forum, the lineup will be determined at the tournament in memory of the founder of Ukrainian sambo Roman Shkolnikov, who was trained by Vasili Oshchepkov. At the end of the season Ukrainian Championship will be held, during which in-house national team (both first and reserve teams) for 2018 will be defined.
