FFF – Föreningen Fäktkonstens Främjande. This year’s fencing event, Challenge Eugéne Fillol, is over, and what an event it was with everyone’s joy of meeting at competition venues again. This year we had a record number of participants, in addition to four Olympic or World Cup medalists in the starting field. However, the situation in Ukraine was with us all the time. The silent minute for the victims of the war at the start of the competition, the Ukrainian flag in the place of honor, all fencers and officials who adorned themselves with blue-yellow ribbons, all FFFs who fenced in a yellow and a blue sock, and then Anatolii Herey’s grand victory in men’s Epee. Anatolii is a Ukrainian fencer, but is active as a coach in Njård Oslo, and he chose to donate his prize money to the fight in Ukraine. The winner in the women’s competition was Estonian Irina Embrich, a gold medalist in teams from the Olympics in Tokyo. Many thanks to everyone who has helped us to carry out this great competition! No one mentioned and no one forgotten, you have all been important!!
