Big Turnout for the 8th Paolo Fattori Trophy
Despite the drought Italy is suffering where our own lake is much lower than usual, the turnout for this year's Special Olympics regatta was as great as always. Clubs from all over Italy come to enjoy the hospitality that we create, with comfortable typical Tuscan hotels and the great food prepared by our own mothers at the lake.
The clubs came from Trieste, Livorno, Torino. Florence, Santo Stefano a Mare, La Spezia, and Rome.
The most memorable moment, after racing all day Saturday and Sunday, was when the winners of the trophy from Livorno (about 60 kilometers distant from our club) decided to award "their" trophy to the athletes from Turin, who had come the farthest (about 300 kilometers). That is SPORT!!!!
Molto bello il gesto di Sportlandia che ha concesso il Trofeo Paolo Fattori all’Armida di Torino in segno di ospitalità.
