Armenian sambo wrestlers win two medals in Moscow

Moscow hosted the international "Sambo Founders Cup" tournament, which was also attended by Armenian sambo wrestlers, according to the press service of the Sambo Federation of Armenia.

Since 1980 this prestigious tournament was called "Kharlampiev Memorial", but this year the World Sambo Federation decided to "restore justice" and called it "Sambo Founders Cup", because besides Anatoly Kharlampiyev the founders of the sport are also Vasili Oshchepkov and Viktor Spiridonov.

This time 250 athletes from 13 countries took part in the tournament.

Among the Armenian sambo wrestlers Narek Dallakyan won bronze medals in the weight category of 64 kg and Vahagn Chalyan in the weight category of 88 kg.
