The history of Ukraine's beach fight began in Odessa
For the first time, the beach wrestling competition took place in June 2014 in Odessa, at the Luzanovka Hydro Park. The fight took place in two age groups (boys under 16 and adults). To try your hand at the new sport, about 80 participants in the adult category and more than 100 participants in the age group under 16 gathered. The tournament was attended by athletes of different types of martial arts of the Odessa region, as well as fighters of other regions of Ukraine who were on holiday during this period of time.
It should be noted that the tournament started at 10:00 am and ended with sunset. Throughout the tournament, there were more and more interested spectators - tentatively, more than 500 sports fans.
