"International Tournament "POBEDA" took place in St.Petersburg this weekend.
This is the 24th Annual tournament with the great traditions and long history behind it. It was initially organised to commemorate the V-Day and approved by the President of Russia as a means of sports and cultural education for the children.
It takes place in the same Sports Arena St. Petersburg "Yubileiny" where the latest World Championships 2013 was staged. The 29 full cadet teams of various Russian regions and other countries as Finland, Latvia, USA, etc., came here to participate and compete for the main Trophy.
Practically, this tournament is one of the most established cadet tournaments of this kind in Russia and is the same mature as our British Open, which was staged last year for the 25th time here in Bedford.
With Sombo on the rise in Great Britain - we look very enthusiastic to the perspective to participate there in St. Petersburg in the 25th Anniversary Tournament next year in 2015
Good luck to all teams in the tournament "Pobeda"!!!
Full results and Photos will appear next week
