In the Tagil formation of the Strategic Missile Forces, a judo and sambo championship is being held.

More than 50 servicemen of the Orenburg Army of the Strategic Missile Forces are taking part in the competition, who, before the final stage, took part in qualifying competitions in missile formations.

During two days of competition, sets of awards will be played in seven weight categories in judo and eight categories in sambo.

“The judo and sambo championship is not only training in strength and endurance, but also lessons in mutual assistance and cooperation,” said Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Oputin, assistant commander of the rocket association for physical training and sports.

The competition is a qualifying stage before the Strategic Missile Forces championship, which will be held from 23 to 30 April at the Novosibirsk missile formation.

“Self-confidence, decisiveness, dedication, patience and respect for elders, teammates and tatami mates are highly valued here,” added Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Oputin.

According to the results of the Strategic Missile Forces championship, the best judokas and sambists will be selected to participate in the All-Russian competitions.
