“I’m proud to have been chosen as testimonial of world fencing championship junior and cadet 2018; it has been a surprise for me that Verona 2018 had selected two athletes still in activity for this role. It is a great honour, a pleasure and also a little responsability. In this event there will be the best of world’s youth in the pistes. A great manifestation, non only for sport. I’m imagining the great anticipation, the hope of the partecipants, boys and girls, who dream a succesfull future. I return back in time, I see myself on a threshold of my world championship, an essential step for my human and sport growth. Not only because I achieved the highest step of the podium, but also because I was in touch with a lot of athletes of different country. The thing that remains of this kind of events is the experience and the feelings. I’m sure that it will happen also in Verona: a great manifestation of sport and life”.
“It’s a great honour for me to be the testimonial. Few years ago I was an athlete of under 20 matches, now I’m the veteran. I see myself again the day before Acireale, when I obtained the gold medal, one of the most unforgettable moment of my life us a athlete. Be a testimonial it’s a privilege, it means tha you are a guide for the young athlete dreaming their future. This role, project you to world’s fencing attenction and to the youngs, who want to follow your footsteps. You are an example for these atheltes and this is a strong incitement. It will be so exciting see all these high level athletes behind the scene. I will be on the piste with them”.
