This was the first fencing event ever in Qrodo and everybody in the team were very excited about the oppertunity. Normally we broadcast over the 3G network, unless we have better options. This time we were able to use the ADSL line of Sport and Rehab Center that have their facilities in Åkeshovshallen. Many thanks.
