For us, this day has a special meaning - after all, the birthplace of this sport is Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinsky, where the founder of sambo, Vasily Oshchepkov, was born. It is gratifying to see that the number of fans of this courageous sport is growing every year in the region, - said Konstantin Stroganov.

According to the chief judge of the competition, Andrei Kirilin from Khabarovsk, the SAMBO day on Sakhalin turned out to be as massive as the “Ski Track of Russia” or “Cross of the Nation”.

- One can only assume how much effort was required to collect so many children and adult wrestlers. It is especially gratifying that Sambo became the culprit of the celebration. After all, this is a national priority sport, by the way, the only one that Russia presented to the world, - Andrei Kirilin underlined.
