Italy wins the team competition at Challenge Bernadotte

Congratulations to the Italian team with Enrico Garozzo, Alfredo Rota, Paolo Pizzo and Matthew Trager.

World cup competition for national teams at Challenge Bernadotte in Stockholm ended on Sunday afternoon. Italy beat Poland in a very dramatic final which had to be decided in sudden death. Poland stayed on top for a long while, despite having to substitute one fencer due to injury. After 7 of the 9 matches, Poland was in the lead  33-30. Enters Paolo Pizzo, a highly accomplished and intensive fencer who evens the score to 39-39. After the 9th and final match, the score was still tied; 41-41. In overtime Alfredo Rota made the final touch and wins the competition for Italy.
