(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 25 – In Tallin the podium of the European Clubs of Taekwondo G2 was not tinged with blue but there is a thread that binds the young Ukrainian athletes protagonists to our Federation: It is easy to imagine the difficulties that in recent months these athletes had to cross. Difficulties overcome also thanks to the commitment of the Fita which since last March has decided to open the doors of the Giulio Onesti Olympic training center to allow these boys who have escaped from the war to continue on the path of their sporting dream. Also competing in Estonia are the 6 Ukrainian boys who, after a long preparation side by side with the Italy team, have won their first medals. Two bronzes that are worth much more than a European podium. “I am very happy, it was an experience that I had not yet lived at these levels – says a very happy Mykhailo Korsak, category -68 under 21 – My thoughts obviously go to all my friends and relatives who I left in Ukraine. And to the new family that I found here in Italy, something special “.

“we will never forget what La Fita has done and is doing for us, this medal is also theirs”, the words of Danyil Babloniu, category -48 junior.

To their words are added those of an equally happy Angelo Cito, President of the Italian Taekwondo Federation: “Six months later, the first important results for these guys arrive. Important results for their positioning in the international ranking, of course, but not only. . There is much more, I think I can say. They deserve it because they are good and because despite what they are going through they do not give up their sporting dreams by proudly representing their country, committing hard and daily together with our Azzurri. our athletes, they do not compete for Italy but we can undoubtedly say that we are all proud of them! ” (HANDLE).
