Australia New Zealand and Turkmenistan national teams will take part in Asian Sambo Championships in Lebanon

Australia and New Zealand are set to contend at the upcoming Asian Sambo Championships in Lebanon. Above 20 sambists will represent Turkmenistan at the Asian Championship in Lebanon.

A decision was taken at the Sambo Union of Asia (SUA) Congress in 2019 to establish a relationship with National Federations in the Oceania region.

The decision, reached at a Congress in Tashkent, was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The pandemic has kept competitors from the region from taking part in the Asian Sambo Championships to date, with the event delayed two times because of limitations on movement between countries.

Australia is a member of the International Sambo Federation, while New Zealand is presently a candidate for membership.

27 athletes, members of the national and youth teams, will represent Turkmenistan at the championship.

It is expected that more than 20 countries will partake in the championship. The strongest sambists of the Asian continent, as well as representatives of Australia and Oceana, will battle 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.
