Mother Arianna Errigo's foil is back on the stage

After the birth of the twins, the fencer will compete in Milan: "The birth of a child, two in our case, changes your life but it's the most beautiful change you could ever experience"

Budapest, 7 August 2013, final of the women's individual foil of the fencing World Championships. On the platform Arianna Errigo and the German Carolin Golubytskyi. In team trials, the blue had won everything: an Olympic gold medal in London 2012, two world championships, five European championships. On an individual level, however, only silvers and bronzes. Until that day 10 years ago: 15-8. "It's the medal I'm most attached to", says the blue who then confirmed on the top step of the podium the following year in Kazan, Russia. "I was number one in the ranking without ever having won a title, I was starting to feel like an eternal second and that was a breath of fresh air". Today, with an avalanche of medals of every metal around his neck and two more twins, Errigo is back on the stage. There has been no salt since the 2022 World Cup in Cairo: individual silver and team gold with Mirea and Stefano on their lap. “I found out I was pregnant about ten days before leaving. I didn't know they were twins, but the gynecologist had reassured me that I could compete without risk for pregnancy". From 22 to 30 July you will be back on the platform at the Allianz MiCo (in the pavilions of the Fiera) at the World Championships in Milan for another medal. “To be dedicated to them, without a doubt”.
