Almalyk becomes a hotbed of development for Asian mas-wrestling
Today, on November 4, the President of the International Mas-Wrestling Federation Alexander Akimov held the IMWF Presidium meeting in Almalyk, Uzbekistan, where he made a proposal to revive the Asian Mas-Wrestling Federation.
Recall that the holding of mas-wrestling events on the Asian continent began long before the creation of the International Mas-Wrestling Federation. So, back in 1996 in Tokyo (Japan), the first presentation of mas-wrestling took place during the Sumo Wrestling World Championship. Since 2000, mas-wrestling has been included in the program of the Children of Asia International Sports Games. In 2011, the Asian Mas-Wrestling Championship was held in Pune (India) for the first time with the participation of athletes fr om seven countries of the continent.
With the establishment of the International Mas-Wrestling Federation in 2011, work began at a higher organizational level. In 2016, the II Mas-wrestling World Championship was held in Cholpon-Ata (Kyrgyzstan) with the participation of 191 athletes from 33 countries of the world. The Mas-wrestling World Cup stages were held in Cholpon-Ata (Kyrgyzstan) and in Almalyk and Khiva (Uzbekistan).
The relevance of the revival of the Asian Mas-Wrestling Federation is obvious. We see the activity of some federations and the passivity of others. It is necessary to establish normal work, which requires a functioning organ. During the Mas-wrestling World Championship in Yakutsk, a general meeting was held, wh ere the leaders of the Asian federations voiced their proposals and their vision of the Asian Mas-Wrestling Federation. Almost everyone then offered to open a continental federation in their country. After a long discussion, it was decided to support the Uzbek colleagues, their arguments turned out to be more weighty.
In terms of population, Asia significantly exceeds the total population of all other parts of the world and accounts for about 60% of the population of our planet. For several years, fourteen Asian countries have been consistently involved in our family of world wrestlers: the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mongolia, the People's Republic of Bangladesh, the United Arab Emirates, the Republic of India, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Republic of Kyrgyzstan, the Republic of Tajikistan, the Republic of Uzbekistan, Republic of the Philippines, Republic of Korea. There is a lot of serious work to be done on the development of new territories.
Today, Ilgam Kadyrov was unanimously elected president of the Asian Mas-Wrestling Federation, and Farkhod Matkarimov was elected Secretary General. President of the Mas-Wrestling Federation of the Kyrgyz Republic Iskender Alymbekov became the first vice-president, Vice-presidents - Nawab Furqan Khan (Pakistan), Omarmukhtar Tamboli (India) and Erdenevanchig Batbaatar (Mongolia) as representatives of the regions of the vast Asian continent. In general, all participants of the meeting are set to work.
Mr. Khan proposed to hold the first stage of the Mas-wrestling World Cup next year in Pakistan, Mongolia will take the second, the final is planned in Kazan, Russia. In addition to the main events, various local events are planned: match meetings, presentations in different countries, etc. The president of the Mas-Wrestling Federation of Mongolia, Munkhsuren Batbaatar, intends to "go with the mas-wrestling stick at the ready" to Korea, Japan and China. Mongolia has developed good sports ties with its neighbors. And now mas-wrestling will become another facet of their cooperation.
The Center of National Sports in Yakutia will fully assist in the presentation and other work of the newly created Asian organization. Colleagues from Kyrgyzstan offered comprehensive assistance from coaches and referees. The Kyrgyz Mas-Wrestling Federation was the first in Asian countries to officially accredit the Yakut sport and boasts the presence of masters of sports of international class. Taking this opportunity, we congratulate Marat Ramatov on being awarded the high title of Honored Coach of the republic. Three of his students became world champions at once this summer!
On such a positive note, the first day in Uzbekistan ended on the eve of three major events at once.
