The 5th Ukrainian Mas-Wrestling Championship gathered a record number of participants

Last Saturday, Melitopol once again hosted the country's main Mas-Wrestling event. Besides the Championship in the open age category, was also held the 4th Ukrainian Mas-Wrestling Championship among juniors, boys and girls. These competitions gathered a record number of participants.

125 athletes fr om Zaporozhye, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov and Kiev regions competed on two mas-wrestling platforms. The vast majority of athletes are young people, although seasoned veterans from the national team also participated in the competitions.

The involvement of students from universities and other educational institutions helped to significantly expand the number of participants.

By the way, since the president of the Ukrainian Mas-Wrestling Federation Valery Gazaev headed the Department of Physical Education, TGATU, named after D. Motorny, youth involvement in Mas-Wrestling has increased several times. The university’s powerful sports base and the staff of the sports department also make a significant contribution to the development of Mas-Wrestling.

Traditionally, the federations of the Dnipropetrovsk and Kherson regions, whose leaders Viktor Kruglik and Konstantin Shvets continue to tirelessly develop the Yakut sport and train athletes of the international level, have nominated strong teams. Between them, as well as the team of Zaporizhzhya region, flared up the main struggle for the team championship. A pleasant surprise was the participation of a separate patrol police team, which was organized by one of the pioneers of the domestic Mas-Wrestling Dmitry Besedin.

For the many participants Saturday’s event was the debut. Well, some athletes have once again demonstrated their high level. The real legend was Aleksey Kushnir, who climbed the highest step of the National Championship’s podium for the fifth time. This time Alexey performed in the category up to 80 kg, wh ere in the finals he met experienced Konstantin Shvets. And yet Alexey, though not without difficulty, but broke the resistance of his opponent, despite the advantage of Konstantin in weight. However, Konstantin’s wife Alexandra, took gold in the category up to 65 kg. And all the more paradoxical, the most difficult fight of Alexandra took place with the main ally of Alexey Kushnir for the development of Mas-Wrestling in the Veselovsky district, Julia Lebedenko. Thus, was set a peculiar status quo.

The management of the Ukrainian Mas-Wrestling Federation is pleased with the level of the Сhampionship and the number of participants. The President of the Ukrainian Mas-Wrestling Federation Valery Gazaev is sure that in a few years the country's championships will bring together hundreds of participants. At the same time, the lack of support from the government and, as a result, the insufficient number of qualified coaching personnel hinder the rapid development of Mas-Wrestling in Ukraine. However, enthusiasts who volunteer to develop Mas-Wrestling do not doubt their success. And proof of this is the entry of the Ukrainian team in this sport into the four strongest teams in the world among more than forty National Federations.

In the team championship among adults, the team of Zaporizhzhya region scored the most points. The second in the number of points were athletes from the Dnipropetrovsk region, and the team from Kherson region took a bronze.
