English Sambo Federation Announcement
The English Sambo Federation are pleased to announce that we have appointed Stephen Sweetlove MBE, FBAPT to the position of English National Coach.
Stephen is a former physical training and self-defence instructor with the British Police Service. He has been involved in sambo since 1985 and has won the British sambo title eight times. His first title was in 1985 followed in 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989 and 1990 after which he decided to retire from competition. In 1992 he came out of retirement to compete and again won titles in 1992, 1996 and 1998.
Stephen has represented Great Britain at two FIAS World championships and two European championships. He has competed at tournaments throughout the Soviet Union/Russia including winning medals in 1986 and 1987 at the famous Anatoly Kharlampiev Memorial tournament held in Moscow and in the same years winning bronze medals at the international tournaments held in Kaliningrad. Stephen has also been silver world medallist at the FIAS World Masters championships.
Since his final retirement from competition Stephen has coached seven British champions, five of whom went on to represent GB at World, European and international level.
Stephen is looking forward to working with Team England to build on their success at the Commonwealth Championships and he is in the process of selecting his coaching team which will be announced in a few days.
