#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The competition was hosted by the Hercules sports hall, where representatives of army hand-to-hand combat (AHC) from all districts of Norilsk, as well as from Dudinka, performed for two days. Traditionally, athletes from other martial arts federations have joined them. A total of 112 fighters entered the tatami in four age groups, including girls. 60 percent of the participants are active youth soldiers of the city. The guys showed themselves perfectly and looked worthy.
In the final protocol among adult fighters, the first team place was taken by the Ministry of Internal Affairs squad, the second was the AHC team of Norilsk, the third – the Siberian Bears sports club. Among teenagers the Norilsk youth army team won.
The next competition is the championship of the Krasnoyarsk region. At least three young men will go to the regional capital this week.
