It is honor for any national team to enter list of Championship of the world in HMB “Battle of the Nations”, while it is a great luck to meet “Russia 1” in the play-off of 5×5 category. On the second day, “Italy 1” had luck to face team Russia. HMBIA News’ reporters met some Italians by the exit from the arena, to find out their impressions from the battle with such powerful team. We talked to Marko Ficcadori, fighter of the Italy 1 team (HMB club “Feltrio”).
Marko Ficcadori: “First of all, a sort of dream, we’ve been dreaming about fighting those guys for many many years. This is our second appearance here on the “Battle of the Nations”, previous year it was good for us actually, this year we’re able to keep the same result and we have the honor of fighting against Russia 1, best team in the world. They are incredible athletes, and now we know why. We are trying to grow and put our best energy in order to improve our skills. It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock’n’roll”.
Russia has won the battle, but Italy did not leave with empty hand either. The battles with such powerful opponent give the team precious experience which makes it stronger.
