what a wonderful day for Italy...

first the unbelievable double Gold at the Swimming Worlds, then this fantastic comeback and triumph over the US (bad) boys in the men's team foil...

and if Garozzo has been by far the best on the pistes all day long, what can I say about Avola's resurrection in the last 2 assaults of the final bout? really amazing...this is what we call "a mentally strong guy" or, as they say in Spanish, "huevos"...:lol:

congrats to him...it wasn't easy to react like he did after all the troubles he had in the previous bouts and, above all, in the first assault of the final...

and, final satisfaction for us, we also won the medal table with 4 gold, 1 silver and 4 bronze medals...

last Olympics maight have been a little disappointing, but the Italian Fencing is still alive and in good shape...

see you next year...:bye:

Such a shame that they never perform like this at the Olympics. :(

the Olympic competitions in Fencing are always a lot different from the World Champs...

getting a qualifying spot is already like winning a medal...

moreover, they are good only in Epee, which is the most crowded and unpredictable weapon of the entire program...

in Foil and Sabre general values are a lot clearer, there are not as many upsets like in Epee...they should try to establish themselves in the other 2 disciplines to get more chances...
