Dear friends,

On behalf of the International Fencing Federation I am glad to welcome the participants and guests of the XXI Veterans World Championship.

Fencing is an amazing sport. It helps us stay fit and keep up our spirits for many years, which is most important at any age. Your fortitude, your passion and your nobleness are inspiring examples to the younger generation.

It is gratifying to know that the number of athletes who take part in veterans competitions is growing year by year. Lately, the fencers of the older generation have greatly improved their skills, which makes the Veterans World Championships one of the most important events of the International Fencing Federation.

I would like to thank the Organizing Committee, the Slovenian Fencing Federation and the wonderful city of Maribor for the efforts they have put in to organize the World Championship.

I am sure that the competitions will be highly appreciated and they will become a grand fencing occasion for everyone.

President of the International Fencing Federation
Alisher Usmanov
