Here is everything I have folks.
US Sambo archive from 1973 - 2011. It is far from complete but, it is the most comprehensive archive out there. There are no junior events listed as of now. Some veteran's divisions, but mainly adult men & women as this is what people search for most. The archive is specific in that it lists full results (as best as possible) of American tournaments and the results of US athletes abroad.
This has literally taken years of searching to put together. It will be up on the ASA website soon. But you guys can get a first look. This is a protected spreadsheet, so it can't be edited.
I know people will look at this and see that they may be missing from the list. Nothing personal. I only have listed what I can verify with official results or other credible evidence (tough to find). The archive is still a work in progress, so as I get more info from people and continue digging, I will edit it.
I hope this is a useful too for you guys!

That was fun.

Spelling is easy enough to change.
I actually still have several AASF events to add to this as well, but their archives only go back a short way...

I recommend keeping the entries exactly as they are recorded, and adding corrections in notes. Just as you don't log matches you know about personally if they are not reported by 3rd party, you shouldn't fix names, weight classes, etc. in the main fields.
This is an awesome accomplishment BTW :)

@Mike Curious what percentage of your matches are on the spreadsheet. Someone else told Steve he got about 50%.

Nobody told me I got 50%. I estimated that myself about one person. Nobody has seen this document till now. Due to the nature of how results are often written (with only the top 3 or 4 listed), I may miss many people who finished lower.
Regarding Mike's name...I have to check the original document and make sure the spelling error was theirs or mine. If it is mine, I will correct it.

I've only competed in two Sport SAMBO tournaments: 50% to answer your question but I also call into question the legitimacy of my first tournament. At first I thought my name wasn't even on there, but there are so many different ways to spell my name I sort of shrugged it off after all this time.

That's an outstanding piece of work sir. Kudos to you for going the extra miles to ensure that Sombo's legacy and history in the U.S. is protected from charlatans and pretenders.
Shut the hell up and train.

Thanks jnp. It is far from done, but this is a great start. I am sure once it is out there, I will slowly be able to gather data from people who have results, etc tucked away in their basements...LOL.
