“Due to the actual epidemiological situation in the world, it would be unsafe to expose our athletes and other participants of competitions to the health risks. The International SAMBO Federation is closely monitoring the situation and will keep all its members informed on a regular basis on the further developments. We urge you to carefully monitor your health and avoid any risks that may affect it”, Vasily Shestakov, FIAS President said.
