HISTORY OF SAMBO (part 2)

INTERNATIONAL FEDERATIONS.
In 1984, the International Amateur Sambo Federation – FIAS was created (in 2001 it was renamed the World Sambo Federation – VFS). Its first president was the Spaniard F. Compte, vice president – D. Henson (USA). In 1985, FIAS was admitted to the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF).

In the 1990s, a split occurred in the sambo world. Several alternative international federations are being created, including the World Sambo Federation (FMS), headed by E. Labrus. In 1993 FIAS was divided into two organizations with identical names. The president of one becomes D. Henson, the other – T. Khorimai (deputy – Russian M. Tikhomirov). As a result of mutual intrigues, sambo is even temporarily excluded from GAISF.

In 1997, the FMS and FIAS merged (T. Khorimai), in the same year the 21st World Championship was held in Russia – under the auspices of the updated Federation. FIAS President becomes M. Tikhomirov. Sambo is again included in the program of the Universiade, World Games, Police Games.

In parallel, FIAS-West operates under the leadership of D. Henson, which holds its World Cup, European Championship and other tournaments.
