On the 7th of December the boys and girls born in 1994-1997 will participate in contest. What awaits the participants and guests of the tournament, we'll find out right now.

"Memorial of Pranciskus Eigminasa" is a tournament of category "B", which is held in Lithuania for the seventh time. Eigminas had been the President of the Lithuanian SAMBO Federation for nearly 40 years; he was awarded the title of Honored coach of the Republic for sport achievements of his charges. Pranciškus Eigminas was behind the creation of the European Federation, also he was the General Secretary of the International SAMBO Federation. He made an enormous contribution to the development of SAMBO in Lithuania and all over the world.

Eduardas Rudas, Lithuanian SAMBO Federation President: Pranciškus was a very interesting person and a good conversationalist. He had a very good oratory skills. 

Tomorrow the girls in 3 weight categories (56, 64 and 64 + kg) and the boys in 8 weight categories will compete. Competitions will last one day. Initially, 12 countries sent in the applications for participation in the tournament, but due to weather conditions 10 countries are likely will be here. Totally there will be more than 100 athletes.

Martin Dubovski, Lithuania: I participated in this tournament 4 or 5 times. And each year I took the prize. Our team, I think, is ready to compete for first place in the team standings. And I will also try to take the first place. 

Adas Rudas, representative of the tournament organizing group

I really think that everybody whom I’ve seen today during training and weighting is actually very good. Of course the Lithuanian team is among the leaders. I think that the main aim of this tournament is not to differentiate the best but to bring everybody together. Though I hope tomorrow we’ll be best. 

Henk-Jon Ningbers, referee: It’s the second time I’ve been a referee here.  before that I also competed here and I was a champion in 2005. Now I’m just enjoying Vilnius and my being a referee of SAMBO tournament of Eigminas. 

Eduardas Rudas, Lithuanian SAMBO Federation President: FIAS Secretary General Nikolay Lents, Honoured president of FIAS David Rudman, 3-time world champion Sergei Grechiho and Česlovas Ezerkas will be the guests of the tournament. World champion in Greco-Roman wrestling Rimantas Bagdonas also promised to come. 

Participants of the tournament who will stay in Lithuania till the 8th of December will have a pleasant surprise. That day of Vilnius will be made for them. As most of the athletes cannot get acquainted with the culture and the main attractions of the host country, this trip will be doubly useful for them.
