On October 2–4, 2019, as a part of the "Days of Moscow in Malta" festival programme, National Sport School hosted a delegation of young sportsmen and coaches from Moscow sport school “Sambo-70”.

Maltese and Russian sportsmen participated in judo and table tennis tournaments. In addition, the young Maltese athletes attended gymnastics master classes by the Olympic medalist from Moscow.

Dr Clifton Grima, Parliamentary Secretary for youth, sports programmes and volunteer organisations in Malta, at the launch of the programme pointed out that collaborations with foreign institutions help Maltese students to expose themselves to different realities which will help them to develop. “This is the most important event that has occurred in these sports disciplines in recent years”, — he said.
