[Press Release] We are pleased to announce that St Lucian athlete Nisso Etienne won a gold medal in his weight class of 90kg .
He faced off against a Barbadian opponent in combat sambo. This is a first as St Lucia has not competed in a Sambo event since 2013.
St Lucia is slated to participate in the next Sambo Championship in Mexico in July. We are very thankful and proud of the opportunity to represent our country in this dynamic and growing martial art.
We would also like to thank our sponsors the St Lucia Electricity Services and St Lucia Civil Service Credit Union for their gesture in aiding to build our fledgling sport of Sambo on the island.
