TSPU student won a silver medal in sambo tournament

Sambo wrestler Valeria Anisimova, who still performs at the junior age, made her debut at the Russian Adult Championship held in Khabarovsk. As the agency reports, the debut turned out to be successful. Valeria, a student of the Tomsk Regional Sports School of the Olympic Reserve, an athlete-instructor of the children's and youth sports school "Rus" and a student of TSPU, won a silver medal.

Denis Vyshegorodtsev, senior coach of the Sambo Department of Children's Sports School "Rus": "The result is gorgeous! To be honest, we came here just to test ourselves, but from the first eounds it became clear that Lera is determined to fight the more mature and experienced athletes, the leaders of the team. In the finals, due to a minor injury, together with the Russian national team coach, we decided to remove Lera from the duel for gold. Together with the silver medal, Valeria Anisimova got a ticket to the adult European Championship, which will be held in May. "
