Senior Championships 2020

Recently the inspection visit of the EFC Secretary General, Jacek Slupski, the EFC Sport and Technical Director Julius Kralik and the EFC TV and Media representative Elena Grishina were held in Minsk aimed at preparing European senior Championships 2020 in that city. The organizing committee showed high interest and attention to that event, which will be the last one influencing the initial seeding at the Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo. The offered venue, which is probably the biggest sports center in Europe, is very impressive and is giving the guarantee that the installations of fencing will give high satisfaction to participants in excellent conditions. More details will be presented to national federations after the deliberation of the EFC Comex in Luxembourg on 9 of November 2019, as well as after final decisions of the organizers concerning accommodation facilities. EFC delegation was also honored by the presence of one of the biggest foil fencers in history, Alexander Romankov. JK
