The police of Mongolia have risen to the platform of mas-wrestling!

Mongolian Mas-Wrestling is ten years old this year!  By the anniversary, the national federation is firmly infected.

The leader of the organization Munkhsuren Erdenebaatar is a responsible person. The daughter of a true nomad was born and raised in the steppe. An excellent rider, she is determined not to engage. It is only worth mentioning how she led her team in Uzbekistan for the medals of the Asian Mas-Wrestling Championship. Due to lack of funds for travel, Munkhsuren decided to travel by land. The Mongolian athletes had to overcome the path of 4,500 km, cross the borders of Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, first of all, before they ended up in the cities of the Asian championship - in Almalyk. The long trip took four days in one direction only.

Purposeful people are always looking for opportunities, reaching big obstacles on the way to their dreams, while others are looking for reasons to stay comfortable. This act of Munkhsuren Erdenebaatar was appreciated by all colleagues and the President of the International Mas-Wrestling Federation Alexander Akimov gave instructions to support in everything the National Mas-Wrestling Federation of the fraternal country.

Munkhsuren, with the support of his life partner, Vice-President of the Asian Mas-Wrestling Federation Erdenevaanchig Batbaatar, sets a global goal - to cover the entire country. Mas-wrestling competitions this year are held not only in sports clubs and societies, but also in various departments of the country. Below we will talk about only one of them - defender the rule of law in the country.

The Mas-Wrestling Federation did not put off for a long time and mas-wrestling competitions among police officers started in January, right after the holiday weekend. Starting in rare aimags (districts), they covered the whole of Mongolia. Somewhere just in yurts, somewhere in the finishing rooms, people in police uniforms clicked their heels, reporting to their superiors about the start of mas-wrestling. Thus, tournaments were held in all 21 tuv-aimags of the country and 9 districts of the capital. Mas-wrestling was liked by everyone, because the competitions are characterized by simplicity of organization, democracy and simple rules for participants, and audience arouses sincere emotions and excitement.

On March 25-26 in the gym of the Police Department of Ulaanbaatar took place the final championship in mas-wrestling among police and soldiers of the Interior Forces of Mongolia. Representatives of 31 teams lined up for the opening ceremony.   Several teams fr om remote aimags were unable to arrive due to poor road conditions after two days of heavy snowfall and the need to assist the population.

The final mas-wrestling competitions were held in ten weight categories: among men (235 people) - up to 60 kg, up to 70 kg, up to 80 kg, 90 kg, up to 105 kg and over 105 kg, among women (88 people) - up to 55 kg, up to 65 kg, up to 75 kg and over 75 kg.

On the eve of the championship, the seconded referee of the international category in mas-wrestling Yegor Yermolaev from Yakutsk held a seminar for referees and provided practical assistance in refereeing and recording the course of the competition.

Participants were enough to compete with a knockout two days in a row. From 9am to 7pm an uninterrupted stream of physically strong men and women competed to make the best police representatives in the sport.

The Championship Secretariat recorded no violations, all athletes from the police and organizations of the internal troops participated in compliance with order, discipline and ethics.
