18 May MPR SENDS 3 TO KAZAKHSTAN FOR USA SAMBO
We headed off to Kazakhstan representing USA Sambo to compete in the 20th Annual Kazakhstan International Invitational. This tournament was host to about 30 teams from different countries around the world. It was a long journey to get there and home, but it was worth the effort just to compete along side of such amazing athletes. We sent 2 coaches and 4 athletes to represent the United States. Our complete trip started May 5th and we arrived home May 11th. I can honestly say everyone in Kazakhstan treated the American team like rockstars. We met so many people and took probably hundreds of pictures with the locals.
