Nina Zandman, Niderland: It is the first tournament in Lithuania for me. I think it would be very productive for me. I'm happy because it's a new tournament for me, but I think it will be very difficult, because I guess I'm the youngest in my weight.

Niels Van der Vegt / Arjan Vijn, Nederland: It’s my first time here. But in SAMBO competitions I participate for the third time. I really hope my performance will be great and progressive. And I am here for the first time. I like it, nice swimming. Also I want to take the rightful place, but for now I do not even know who would have to fight. 

Nina Zandman, Niderland: We relax before starting. In the evening we have a training.

The competition was attended by over 100 athletes born in 1994-97 from 9 countries. Tournament was held for the seventh time. It is included in the official calendar of FIAS. And, nevertheless, the goal of the competition is not only in the promotion and development of SAMBO . It is held to those people who honor the memory Eygiminas. Pranciskus Eygiman had been the President of the Lithuanian SAMBO Federation about 40 years; for sport achievements of his charges he was awarded the title of Honored coach of the Republic.

Henk-Jon Ningbers, referee: I heard a lot of him and read about him. He was a very good promoter for SAMBO in Vilnius. In my opinion he was a good person, he developed SAMBO in the world. 

Adas Rudas, the organizing team: He was a remarkable person. I think for everyone of us for SAMBO lovers he is one of the most important figures in SAMBO history in Lithuania, and everyone can remember him only with a good word and I think all tournament is about him and to remember him. 

Yonas Valunas, the member of executive committee of the Lithuanian SAMBO federation: Pranciskus Eygminas certainly is an outstanding figure of SAMBO and across Lithuania and internationally. Because we informally call him the father of SAMBO Lithuania. And internationally, he distinguished himself as a leader of the international federation. His contribution to the sport recognized.

Seams Manning, Ireland national team coach: Leo is now introduce SAMBO in Ireland. Now its not so big, our federation. But I think it will more close involve. I think SAMBO become bigger in Ireland.

Boris Lebedev, Estonia: I learned my strength, this is the second SAMBO competitions for me. This is a great experience, today I have a lot of meetings. Maybe I will think about how to switch from judo to SAMBO. 

Evelina Jasaite, Lithuania: You can I ask your friends to come and to keep you, so it is easier when you at a home town. 

German Duran, Estonia: Everybody were good athletes. In the finals was a difficult meeting. I won 2-1. Another subgroup was a difficult meeting, I won it 2-0. Well, so do all were the convenient partners.

FIAS President Michael Schultz, the 1-st Vice President David Rudman and General Secretary of the International Federation Nikolai Lenz saw the fights. The tournament was attended by girls of 3 weight categories and boys of 8 weight categories. When the competition will be more visited, the number of categories will increase.
