Happy New Year and welcome back, even this season of Masters and Veterans of In line Italian began with the customary meeting of January 6. Also this year the participation was very good: 40 athletes present came from different Italian regions. The athletes were divided, by David “Stainless” Ninzatti that will still be our GM, in three groups: the Kingdom of Italy, the Republic of Venice and Kingdom of Lombardy and faced each other in a series of games that have seen as the winner of the tournament the team of Republic of Venice.
Our “boys” after the World labors of Bolzano and Merano were left with the usual determination and desire to do well considering the change on the bench of the Masters team, the desire to get noticed by the new coach was very high.
The turnover on the bench of over 38 sees the departure of coach Roberto Varotto, and we thank them for their commitment and the work done up to the last World Cup, and the arrival of Mr. Alessio Buzzo as a new technical guide. The new coach, former coach of the Ghosts Padua playing in the Italian top division, has seen the athletes and have the first impressions: there will be work to build an over 38 competitive teams that will face the age-prepared and aggressive as we have seen in Bolzano in 2016.
At the helm of the team over 45 (Veterans) is reconfirmed coach Alessandro “Lazzi” Tarantola that led to the silver medals are our “otherwise young” in the last edition of the World Cup.
