Last Saturday our fighters from Sambist Fighting Academy competed in the British Open Sambo Championship in Folkstone alongside fighters from 12 other countries.
We had 8 of our warriors fighting at the event with each one giving the crowd a spectacular display of their strength and abilities. Fight after fight 5 of our men came out as medalists claiming a place as Britains top Sports Sambo fighters with our Head Coach Oleg Sibilev being crowned as the British Champion in his weight category for the second time!
The results for the medalists from Sambist Fighting Academy are as follows:
- Jack Wilson - Bronze
- Vladimir Voskresenskiy - Silver
- Yuriy Habarov - Silver
- David Reid - Bronze
- Oleg Sibilev - Gold
We would like to say a special thank you to all the supporters who helped boost our team spirit during the tournament and give a big shout out to Colin Carrott who was the organiser of this years fantastic event!
Congratulations to all the fighters and we wish you all the best in your training.
