Törölve / Canceled

VB2020  Veterán Világbajnokság – Porec, 2020.

A héten, hosszas és széles körű konzultációt követően hozták meg a döntést – a FIE lemondta az idéi horvátországi veterán  világbajnokságot. Természetesen csalódottak vagyunk de, a nemzetközi járvány helyzetet és a különösen veszélyeztetett korosztályokba tartozó vívók egészségét, általános jólétet figyelembe véve ez volt a helyes döntés.

A 2021-es VB-t jelenleg még Floridában tervezik, Porec pedig 2022-ben ad majd  otthont a Veterán Világbajnokságnak. A következő hetekben várható döntés a csapat EB -vel kapcsolatban.

—)————  ————(—

As you may already have heard, the FIE has cancelled the Veterans World Championships in Croatia this year. This was not a decision they made lightly but one that they made after a deep and wide consultation within their network.

Naturally, we are all disappointed but the overall well-being of the global fencing community is the higher priority.

The 2021 Championships are still currently scheduled for Florida and Porec will now host 2022.

As promised previously, EVF will make announcements about the European Team Championships in the next couple of weeks.

A 202EB20200-as csapat EB – ami eredetileg májusra volt kiírva – első körben csak halasztották, abban bízva hogy novemberben jobb lesz a járvány helyzet és    megrendezhető lesz. Sajnos, megszületett a végleges döntés – törölték.

A továbbiakban olvasható Caryl Oliver üzenete:

“I feel like this is my King Canute moment (Google it if you don’t know)!
For the past few weeks we have been working hard with our colleagues in Belgium, trying to figure out a way that we can deliver the postponed European Team Championships in November this year.
No matter how we looked at it and no matter how many cut-down event plans we considered we came back to some insurmountable barriers:
While many countries have a range of strategies in place to keep everyone as safe as possible, the virus is still there and still represents an enormous threat to veteran fencers in particular.
In order to prepare a venue that might be relatively safe in which to fence there are enormous cost implications that the organising committee cannot reasonably be expected to shoulder and which are beyond the resources of EVF.
Not one of us involved in the organsation of these Championships is prepared to carry the burden of seeing one of our friends or colleagues get sick or die because they came and fenced at our invitation.
As I have always stated, the wellbeing of veterans fencers in Europe is my priority so it is with enormous sadness that I have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 European Team Championships.
I would like to thank Paul van Agtmael and his hard working team who have explored every option with myself and Benoit Pincemaille – we really tried and for a little while we really thought we were going to be able to pull it off!
We are continuing to work hard on behalf of all veteran fencers in Europe and hope that we can celebrate together in 2021.
For those of you asking about the Circuit Events we are currently getting feedback from local organisers who are making decisions at a local level. We will share information as it becomes available.
Meanwhile, stay safe, keep training and be ready for when we can fence each other again.
Caryl Oliver – President EVF

Megdöbbenve olvastam a hírt…
Aleksandar Anastasov – a Mecedón, a Nagy Aleksandar, a veterán vívók Sasha-ja – itt hagyott minket és az angyalok csapatába igazolt át…

Kiváló ember, lehengerlő energiával és humorral, fantasztikus egyéniség volt… nem találok szavakat…

Minden vívó eseményen ott volt, nem csak a veterán versenyek álandó résztvevője - minden fegyvernemben hanem, szinte az összes korosztályos világversenyen jelen volt…

Borzasztóan hiányozni fog… 

Nyugodj békében Sasha…

2019/20 EVF körversenyek értékelése – beszámoló…

2019-20 European Veterans Circuit Report:

Please find below a message from Caryl Oliver and a presentation from Leonardo Patti.

Hello to all our Fencing Colleagues in Europe,

We are pleased to release to you the presentation and report that Leonardo Patti has compiled and would normally have presented to you live at our Congress.   As you will see, despite the set-backs of this year, the Circuit has been a success and I would have asked for a round of applause for Leonardo and all the Organisers who staged competitions this season.   We have our 2020 Fencers of the Year and hope that we can celebrate them in the near future.   We have planned for the 2021 Season but cannot make any predictions at this stage.

Caryl Oliver – President

2019-20 European Veterans Circuit Report

We started the European Veterans Circuit in the current 2019-20 season with the aim to provide motivation for fencers to travel outside their own countries and to provide quality events to encourage local fencers to enter.

The data shown in the presentation confirm that we achieved this goal even if the season could not be completed because of COVID-19. We would like to thank all the organisers who made a success of the European Circuit and all the fencers who travelled to participate in these events.

Sadly, only 8 of the 12 events could be completed (3 for épée and foil and 2 for sabre) with more than 800 fencers participating; among the participants more than 50% are foreigners travelling from abroad and more than 30% of the host country fencers never participated in the previous European Championships: these figures confirm once more that the goal has been achieved.

As a result of the interest in our Circuit, we have received requests from more countries to include events or to increase current events to include more weapons. The twelve original events were awarded for three years and so we decided to add one weapon to three events to reach a total of 5 events for per weapon.

The resulting provisional calendar is available in the presentation. Unfortunately we cannot foretell how COVID-19 will develop throughout Europe in the next months and we have to be ready to reschedule the events according to the situation.

We started this season providing the organisers with very general guidelines, leaving them with considerable flexibility on most issues regarding their competition organisation; after the experience and feedback we got from this first season, we decided to update the guidelines in order to provide a more uniform approach to the whole European Circuit.

The ranking system looks adequate at the moment according to the data shown in the presentation and we have been able to award the inaugural Fencers of the Year; however we will review at the end of the next season based on the total number of events from which the rankings may be calculated.

2020 EVF

AZ ÉV EURÓPAI VETERÁN VÍVÓJA - 2020 -ban először! 

A vírushelyzet miatt lerövidült a tavaly kihírdetett, fegyvernemenként 4 versenyből álló EVF versenyszorozat. Május 1-én az Európai Veterán Vívóbizottság lezárta a ranglistákat és az addigi pontok alapján kihírdette a győzteseket.

A 24 lehetséges cím közül hármat magyar veterán vívó nyert el – ez fantasztikus eredmény!   Akikre nagyon büszkék vagyunk:

  • Bernát Andrea (UTE) 40+ női tőr
  • Fellegi Ildikó (OSC)    60+ női tőr
  • Hoffman Ibolya (Győr) 60+ női párbajtőr

Despite the truncated end, the first season of European Veteran Fencing Circuit Competitions was a success. EVF is delighted to announce the 2020 Veteran Fencers of the Year!

There are medals being prepared and these will either be sent to the winners or presented when we are all next allowed to be together again.
