Individual European Championships 2023: three FCC champions take the podium!

An explosion of success characterized in the first day of the Plovdiv 2023 European Individual Championships for Italian fencing.

Italian athletes wrote an indelible page in the history of the sport, bringing home six medals. A triumphant victory including two precious Golds and a podium completely dominated by the tricolor in Women’s Foil.

A sign that Italy has not only excelled in Europe, but has proven to be a global force: as stated by Paolo Azzi, President of the Italian Fencing Federation.

Future Champions Camp’ Champions and Staff were at the center of this day of victories.

Women’s Foil – FCC’s champs Alice Volpi and Martina Favaretto

In WOMEN’S FOIL category, two of our long-time staff members climb the rankings until they challenge each other on the platform: ALICE VOLPI and MARTINA FAVARETTO.

“A victory requires continuous, constant training on and off the platform, physical but also mental. Yes, because the mind must also be trained, prepared to deal with difficulties, disappointments, fears, anxieties, trained to manage emotions to be able to never give up” are Martina Favaretto’s words that can really convey her determination to achieve her goals.

Silver medal for her and bronze medal for Alice Volpi in the Plovdiv 2023 European Individual Championships.
