Ufa will host Russian mas-wrestling championship in March

Ufa will host the championship of Russia in mas-wrestling with the participation of more than 350 athletes from 30 regions of the country. Competitions will be held from March 24 to 27 at the Rima Batalova Sports Training Center. The opening ceremony will take place on March 24 at 17:00.

The upcoming tournament will be a qualifying tournament for the World Mas-Wrestling Championship, which will be held in September in Uzbekistan.

Recall that mas-wrestling is the national sport of Yakutia. In 2003 it entered the All-Russian sports register. Its rules are simple: to win, the athlete needs to pull the stick out of the opponent's hands while the legs of both participants rest on the board. The main thing in mas-wrestling is to keep the balance and take the opponent out of it. The victory in the fight is counted if one of the wrestlers manages to pull the opponent over the support board or if the opponent releases the stick.

Let's add that the team of Bashkiria won 20 medals in the championship and championship of the Volga Federal District in mas-wrestling in Chuvashia on March 4-5. According to the results of two competitive days, the athletes of the republic won four gold, seven silver, and nine bronze medals, took the second team place among men and women, the third team among girls and boys aged 14-15, and the second place among girls and boys aged 16-17, reported Bashinform News Agency.
