Vice-President of the International Mas-Wrestling Federation Signor Vilmar Oliveira is the most active on his continent.

At a meeting of the Presidium, he took the floor:

– Dear President and distinguished members of the Presidium and invited persons!

We have been successfully developing mas-wrestling in different states of Brazil for many years., we conduct courses, we hold championships, presentations in schools, universities, clubs, as well as in the Armed Forces.

Every year we organize a Mas-Wrestling Tournament on the International Day of the TAFISA Challenge.

I introduce and develop our species across the continent: Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia. Venezuela. Several more South American countries will soon join us. We are actively working to increase the number of countries, where mas-wrestling is actively developing.

Athletes from the above countries take part in all important international competitions and are included in the top lists of the International Mas-Wrestling Federation. We have a lot to be proud of!

To develop and popularize mas-wrestling, we conduct regional, national and international competitions.

We have translated the International Mas-Wrestling Rules into Portuguese and are preparing a translation of the rules also into Spanish.

Every year we hold the South American Championship at the Arnold Classic South America Festival. It is held in an open format and more and more international athletes are coming to us.

The next one is planned for Sao Paulo in April 2021 of the year. We invite all our friends.

We are glad, that these competitions were again included in the IMF Calendar for 2021 year and look forward to financial and technical support in holding such significant competitions.

I am very happy and proud, that I am a member of the IMF and take part in our common cause.

Thank you all for your attention.
