As if there was not enough bad news coming out of Moscow today. Igor Kurinnoy informed that Sambo-70 was on fire. They successfully evacuated everyone, they think it started in the sauna/swimming pool area.

It was an incredible place to train with 5 huge training areas,museum. When I trained there it was common to see 150-200 judo and/or sambo guys on the mat. Former and current World and/or Olympic medalists as well as up and comers were always there. I'm surprised I survived.

That sucks, hopefully they can rebuild it. Maybe you can post some pics on this thread of the way it looked as a memorial.

That sucks. It's on the same level as the Kodokan burning down. Hopefully the damage is minimal and/or they rebuild as soon as possible.

They should make sure Vladimir Putin gets to know about this.
