Two days ago, the International SAMBO Federation exhorted sambists worldwide to struggle against coronavirus. The start of the flash mob tagged as “Only Together We’ll Defeat Coronavirus” was given by Chinese sambist Ge Xiaolong who in his video demonstrated how to throw the COVID-19 dummy and defeat it by using SAMBO techniques. And FIAS recommended that all sambists stay home and continue practicing there.
Along with Chinese sambists, the athletes from the Dominican Republic were among the first to respond to the call, by recording a series of videos with their training workouts in domestic conditions
British sambists did not remain unconcerned. Thus, British coach Barry Gibson made an improvised SAMBO dummy and started exercising at home, himself and his “little warrior princess”.
