Giorgio Caruso, press officer of the Italian Federation of Fencing, welcomed in the field of this sport 40 students from Gorizia’s Polo Liceale, that will be involved with written communication, audio and videos during the kermesse.

During the three-days-competition we will host the Campionati Italiani Assoluti” and the Paralympic championship, the national most important fencing event with about 400 athletes who will be competing. Today in the agenda we have male foil and épée individual competitions and women’s sabre, divided in seven groups formed by six athletes, all against everyone with a total of 42 athletes. After the qualification there will be direct elimination matches divided into sixteenths-finals, fourth rounds, quarterfinals, semifinals and finals.

Today’s final will start at 4:30 PM and will take place in the head office of “Unione Ginnastica Goriziana” in via Rismondo 2, in the heart of the city.

Caruso, with his experience as a journalist in two Olympic and Paralympic games, said that communication is very important and that young people have an important role in it.

There are great expectations, the athletes are ready and the show will be amazing! The students from Polo Liceale wish everyone good luck and hope that the audience will enjoy the fencing competitions.
