“World wrestling cannot develop without Russia”

The results of the national championship were summed up

FSBR President Mikhail Mamiashvili and head coach of the Russian freestyle wrestling team Dzambolat Tedeev summed up the results of the national championship in Tuva and spoke about the prospects for the return of our athletes to international tournaments.

In Kyzyl, from June 24 to June 26, the Russian freestyle wrestling championship was held. The first championship of Russia in the capital of the Republic of Tyva took place 25 years ago at an open-air stadium. Then, in 1997, the first significant victories were won by the future Olympic champions Adam Saitiev and Murad Umakhanov. The victory in Kyzyl opened the way to the World Championships for Kuramagomed Kuramagomedov, as well as warm memories of Tuva at that time from Anzor Tembotov, who also won a gold medal here. In addition, the recently deceased Andrei Shumilin has the title of national champion in 1997.

For 25 years, the All-Russian competition in Tuva has reached a new qualitative level. Today. in the context of total international sanctions against Russian sports, such tournaments are especially important. This time, six athletes defended the title of national champion won a year earlier in Ulan-Ude. According to the website of the Russian Wrestling Federation, these are Olympic champion Zaur Uguev, Olympic medalist Artur Naifonov, world champion Abasgadzhi Magomedov, world championship medalist and European champion Magomed Kurbanov, European champion Israil Kasumov, and Malik Shavaev. For Naifonov and Magomedov, this gold is the third, and Uguev wins the national championships for the fifth time. Not in a row, but “multiple”, namely the two-time champion of Russia, becomes Razambek Zhamalov. Zaur Uguev is the only Tokyo Olympic champion who fought at the national championship, and he again stopped the Tuvan Nachyn Mongush in the final.

In addition to the deserved champions, new “stars” appeared in Kyzyl. Today, these can be called champions in weights up to 65 kg and up to 125 kg – Ibragim Ibragimov and Alyona Khubulova, respectively. Heavy Alen Khubulov also gave hope – in this weight the Russian team has obvious problems, and the team needs a leader, but whether Khubulov will become one – time will tell.

“We have very important tasks in the development of sports, the development of wrestling, which we will solve in the near future. I am convinced that today’s championship will not only serve as an impetus for the development of wrestling in Tuva, not only selection for a great team, but also the first step to the Olympic Games, where, I am convinced, we will participate. World sport cannot exist without Russia, and world wrestling cannot develop without Russia – without Dagestan, Ossetia, Chechnya, Tyva, Krasnoyarsk and our other regions,” summed up the results of the championship the President of the FSBR, Olympic champion in Greco-Roman wrestling Mikhail Mamiashvili.

The head coach of the Russian freestyle wrestling team Dzambolat Tedeev outlined the tasks for the near future.

“Today we need to use every opportunity. Yes, for now, our athletes have a temporary ban, and there are not so many competitions for us. Unfortunately, many things do not depend on us, but we have a hope to speak at the World Championships. We see how representatives of other international federations in different sports return to the international calendar, and we hope that the day is not far off when the United World of Wrestling will also meet us halfway.

Very soon we will meet in Sochi, there will be a two-week training camp, and at the end of July we will start a three-week training camp in Kislovodsk. We hope that we will nevertheless compete in September in the capital of Serbia, Belgrade, at the World Championships, and the next start for our wrestlers will be on the 20th of August in Kazan – the Spartakiad of the peoples of Russia, ” Tedeev said.
