Opening day, May the 25th

Posted by firenze2010 on 26/05/2010

Spring arrived late this year in Florence, pouring rain and chilly winds left little hope for an ideal season over this tournament…

But eventually this morning the sun shone over the opening ceremony. 30 C°, moderate breeze, open sky: all we need to enjoy the superb location of the Costoli swimming pool.

Civic authorities, the head representatives of CMAS and FIPSAS patronized the protocol. The teams were eager to engage the competition, so the speech was kept to a minimum and soon we started.

Many surprises spring up during the early games: team proficiencies appear to be implemented since the last confrontation. Besides the leading teams keep their primates, other formations closed the gap, offering a competition truly enjoyable and surely not boring.

Fair play lead the way. The referees have little to work and minus to argue about. Their work always excellent.

Germany and Norway confirm themselves as teams to be feared, scoring two-digit versus zero scores. We wait eagerly for the Ger-Nor match.
