The 37th World Sambo Championships are being held at the Yubileyny Sports Complex in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Mongolian female wrestler D.Sumiya won a gold medal at the World Sambo Championship.

On the second day of the tournament, D.Sumiya, who previously won a world championship title in Minsk in 2012 after beating her opponents from Bulgaria, France and Russia, won another gold medal in the women’s +57 kg weight category.

On the first day of the most important sambo competition of the year, Labor Hero and State Honored Athlete Kh.Tsagaanbaatar won a silver medal in the men’s 74 kg after beating Russia’s Kurzhev and Georgia’s Mamulashvili. Kh.Tsagaanbaatar lost to Belarusian wrestler, Popov, who became world champion.

On the same day, two other Mongolian wrestlers, D.Tomorkhuleg (men’s 68 kg) and T.Battogs (women’s 64kg) won bronze medals.

Later at the event, B.Damlanpurev, who competed in the men’s 62 kg won a bronze medal in the combat sambo category. This is his sixth medal from an international competition.

This year’s World Sambo Championship is attracting a lot more attention than usual because the competition also commemorates the 75th anniversary of Sambo.
