JUDO on 25th SELL student games 2009


The SELL (Suomi, Eesti, Latvian, Lithuanian) students sport games originated in 1923 when a student sports competition was organized in Terbatu (Tartu). Students from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland participated in these games, therefore the name includes the initial letters from the names of these countries. Until 1939, the SELL games were organized in one of the four Baltic Sea countries. In 1940, soviet occupation interrupted the games.

In 1997, representatives from Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania signed a declaration for the renewal of the SELL games.
