Mauritius has become the latest country to hold its National Sambo Championships, although will not send athletes to next month's World Championships.
More than 90 sambists took part in the event in Bel Air, which featured kids, cadet, youth, junior and adult categories.
Both men's and women's titles were on offer, and 20 national champions were crowned.
Lidesh Jungly - one of two Mauritian bronze medallists at last year's African Sambo Championships - won among the winners, taking the men's under-88-kilogram crown.
Mauritius Sambo Federation founder and President Parsad Balkissoon hailed the increased participation at this year's eighth edition of the competition.
"Sambo is growing in Mauritius," Balkissoon said.
"The number of participants has tripled from last year’s National Championships.
"Likewise, the technical progress of local sambists is remarkable.
"This validates the work being done at the levels of the different clubs and regions in Mauritius.
"I am happy that girls in Mauritius are also increasingly engaging in sambo.
"In fact, out of the 20 categories on the programme, seven categories were for female athletes."
While it has withdrawn from the World Championships, citing apprehension over the coronavirus pandemic, the Mauritius Sambo Federation will take part in the International Sambo Federation Congress virtually next month and was involved in the Online Sambo Cup earlier in the pandemic.
The World Championships are taking place in Novi Sad in Serbia, running from November 6 to 8.
