Non-title bouts consist of three rounds and title fights consist of five rounds. Sambo tournaments incorporate both grappling and striking. Striking is combined with throws until a competitor hits the ground.
The sport also incorporates a raised platform and points are awarded for taking an opponent out of the competition area. There are many variations of this particular technique.

Athletes not featured in the Daily Beast article at the Olympics. The entire piece is an astoundingly creepy exercise in Grindr-baiting , which involves a journalist accessing Grindr in an unlikely setting and … seeing what happens. But the Daily Beast piece, penned by Nico Hines, is a uniquely disgusting and irresponsible entry into the tired genre.
Hines entices his often closeted subjects under false pretenses; effectively outs several closeted athletes who live in repressive countries; then writes about the whole thing in a tone of mocking yet lurid condescension.
