New Year Greetings from the President of Kurash Confederation of Asia-Oceania Komil Ruziev.

Assalomu Alaykum to all my dear Kurash family members!

Here is another year coming to an end in the blink of an eye.

Admittedly, 2020 has been a very challenging and difficult year for all of us. Many of the goals we set for ourselves, had to postpone our plans a bit.

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus plague, which touched the whole world, took away many of our loved ones and comrades.

It is no exaggeration to say that the past has once again reminded us that health is our priceless treasure.

Dear Kurash devotees!

One of the most important events in the development of our beloved Kurash in 2020 was the decision of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On measures to develop the national sport of Kurash and further enhance its international prestige."

This decision will undoubtedly usher in a new era in the development of our struggle in the world.

The resolution identifies important issues such as the full support of all confederations within the IKA, national federations, improving the quality and number of international tournaments, providing national federations with the necessary equipments, like yaktaks, gilams, and inclusion into the Olympic Games.

Dear colleagues!

As you all know, the reason for the pandemic was that many kurash competitions and events were not held on the continents.

However, we have high hopes for the coming new 2021. We plan to hold all the tournaments and championships that were not held last year this year.

Your support in this regard is very important to us.

Today, on the day of good wishes, we hope that our New Year will be one of the most successful and peaceful.

I wish you all good health and success in your professional activities.

Happy New Year!


Komil Ruziev,

President of  Kurash Confederation Asia-Oceania.
