The first day of the Championship was pretty good for us, as our Team-1 helped the fighters of Team-2. But the second day of the competition was much more difficult, because in addition to mass categories, we also fought in Triathlon and all our men needed help. As a result, it was a kind of a marathon, as we had to fight and help our comrades.
After all, each fighter participating in “Triathlon” had one assistant, but the entire Team-1 (there were eight of them) was assisted only by three fighters from Team-2. The guys worked heroically, they dressed the men, brought water for no one to be thirsty.
Despite all these difficulties, I can say that our team did not give up, and all the guys fought to the end. Next year we will try to have a decent support group.
The result of this “Battle of the Nations” was that we united and worked as a single unit.
