After the successful first edition of the World Combat Games, in which the 15 Olympic and non-Olympic combat sports  promote an event under SportAccord for their elite athletes, the second edition will be held from October 18-26th in St. Petersburg.

The recognition which this event holds globally has been demonstrated again by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which has once again granted its patronage to the Games for the 2013 edition.

The countdown clocks in at 6 months to go!
