Ahmed, how did you manage to organize such a tournament?
- Yes, the tournament was held at the highest level. Participants came from 14 countries, more than 400 athletes. Everything went perfectly!
The only point is in the fight in the absolute category. On the left hand everything was all right, but on the right I expected to see Dmitry Trubin and Dmitry Silayev in the final, but Silaev lost in eleminations, and I was a little surprised. But everything else went well.
The level of participants was very high, who would you mention separately and why?
- It's worth saying that the level was really high, because 400 competitors are a record figure, we did not collect so many athletes even at the Asian Championships. I think that the indicator is good, because besides medals and souvenirs we also prepared cash prizes.
Taking someone specific, I want to mention Dmitry Trubin - he won easily and confidently.
