THE Fencing World Championships in Milan they come alive. Once the three-day qualifying phase is over, the first medals will be awarded in the world championship in the Lombard capital. Tuesday 25 July it will be the turn of female sword and to male saber. For the Italians in the race there is a great opportunity to increase the already rich haul of medals in the World Cup, currently standing at 357 with 118 golds, 110 silvers and 129 bronzes, also in light of the absence of the Russian champions (members of military groups or those who have shown public appreciation for the war in Ukraine were not admitted). Furthermore, in the World Cup Italy won at least one race in all six weapons. The conditions for doing well, also considering the support of the blue fans, are all there. Without forgetting that there will also be very precious points up for grabs to redeem the pass for Paris 2024.
