On the first day of European Cup Lignano Italy is the first nation, before Austria, Germany and the Netherlands.
Actually it was a hard day with so much tension! The first fight was difficult because I wasn’t at ease. I was losing by waza-ari so I had to recover the score.
I want to thank Enrico Parlati, my family and all my friends who are always with me. For the moment I’ll participate in the Lignano training camp. Then, we’ll decide a scheduled programme of competitions.
Another brilliant performance came from Asya TAVANO (ITA), who took the gold in +78kg female category. Asya bested Oceane DIARRASSOUBA (FRA), Erica SIMONETTI (ITA) and Carmen DIJKSTRA (NED). Asya commented her competition,
I’m very satisfied with my competition and with how I managed all the fights. It was difficult to beat Erica Simonetti, a strong Italian athlete… But I did it! I’m very happy because I fought in my region. I want to thank my family, my friends and my team that always believe in me.
In fact, Asya is from Udine, very close to Lignano.
