The team of Edelweiss Grozny won the European Club Championships for men in Wuppertal. The team was supported by Ilias Iliadis who gave various clinics in Grozny for the talents.

In the final Edelweiss defeated the team of Club Judo de Valencia with captain Sugoi Uriarte. The Spanish team was again a surprise. The women’s team of Valencia took the silver in Ankara in the Golden League. The final was quite intense and Edelweiss took the lead after Yakub Shamilov overcame Gar Uriarte U66kg. But brother Sugoi was victorious over Russian Lechi Ediev and made the equalizer. Abas Azizov gave Grozy the lead back after his win against Igor Herrero. Said Emi Zhambekov could make the final decision, but it was Azeri Mammadali Mehdiyev who won this contest. The contest between Tamerlan Bashaev and Iurii Krakovetskii was the decisive one. It was Bashaev who became the man of the match scoring ippon against Krakovetskii and gave Grozny the European Club title.

Greek Team Aris JC won a surprising bronze medal after a 4-1 victory over French Sucy Judo. Georgian Ushangi Margiani became the match winner making 3-1 for the Greek, Iakiv Khammo (UKR) added the 4-1.

German team Hamburger Judo Club won the German Bundesliga and was one of the favourites. Their first match was against the later winners Edelweiss Grozny, a key match in the first round. But Hamburg proceeded after wins against AJA Paris, SKKP Bruno and for bronze the French team of Boets was the opponent. Despite the strong team of Hamburg, the French gave good opposition. The bus of the French included The Hague winner Ivan Voroboev, who again met with Dominic Ressel and gave the French the lead. Krisztian Toth and Dimi Peters gave the German’s the final victory and bronze medal.

The event was perhaps the last international fight for international stars such as Sugoi Uriarte and Dimitri Peters.
