More than 20 sambists will represent Turkmenistan at the Asian Championship in Lebanon.
The Asian and Youth Sambo Championships will start in the Lebanese city of Jounieh on June 2. The tournament will run until June 4. The program includes competitions in sports and combat sambo.
27 athletes, members of the national and youth teams, will represent Turkmenistan at the championship.
It is expected that more than 20 countries will participate in the championship. Not only the strongest sambists of the Asian continent, but also representatives of Australia and Oceana will fight for the medals of the tournament: the teams of Australia and New Zealand. The decision to establish sports relations with the national federations of the Australian continent was made back in 2019 at the Congress of the Sambo Union of Asia (SUA) in Tashkent.
