2019 Summer Universiade

Fencing

The Event

The fencing competition at the 2019 Summer Universiade will take place on the 4-9 July at the CUS Salerno in Baronissi. Fencing is a compulsory sport on the Summer Universiade program and has been included since Turin 1959. The fencing competition at the Summer Universiade is always extremely high as highlighted in Taipei 2017 with over 20 Olympic or world championship representatives competing. For Napoli 2019, five UniRoos have been selected to compete against over 300 international
student-athletes in the various fencing disciplines.  

 

Results

The athletes in our fencing team achieved some impressive results against stiff competition this year. Our Men’s Foil Team defeated Japan, one of the strongest teams in the world, to compete for the bronze medal but were edged out to 4th place in a tough match. Congratulations to the entire team for their performances at the event!
