Alessio Foconi in Tokyo
A few hours later, an even better script in France, where the Cup event was held in Saint Maur. This time even an all-blue final, or rather Tuscan, with Alice Volpi, a Fiamme Oro florist from Siena, 2018 world gold, champion beating 15-10 Martina Batini, 30 years old from the Forestry area of Pisa. A surprise final, to which the most awaited protagonists failed to arrive: Arianna Errigo, winner of the last round of the Cup in Cairo, was beaten 15-11 by the American Lee Kiefer in the quarterfinals, while Elisa Di Francisca stopped in the second round against the Russian Adelina Zagidullina. But overall the Dream Team proves to always have available cards, monopolizing the final with Volpi anyway and an athlete like Batini who risks not going to Tokyo despite having beaten the Russian Inna Deriglazova in the semifinals, the blue scarecrow in the last Olympics editions and World Cup.
