Dear fencers,

 

Welcome to the Hanseatic City of Stralsund and the Veterans World Championships 2016.

 

The successful German veteran fencers have been waiting for a long time for their first home world championship. Thus, Stralsund with its nearly 800 years old history also makes a part of fencing history. The fact that the world championships take place in this hanseatic city shows that fencing is a fascinating sport for people everywhere in Germany. Stralsund will be a perfect host for veteran fencers worldwide. In the “Hanse Dom” we find excellent conditions for our sports, and Stralsund offers remarkable impressions for its visitors.

The historical city is one of the world cultural heritages of the UNESCO, the German museum of sea, the Ozeaneum, the Rügendamm, gate to Germany’s biggest island, the famous gothic brick buildings – all this is worthwhile a visit besides the competitions.

The organizers have made many efforts to make the world championships a big success and an unforgettable event for all participants since November 2014.

In 2016, the FIE-flag was handed over to Stralsund from Limoges, and this was the starting signal for the fencing federation of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the city, the region, sponsors and many involved and spirited assistants for the preparation of the first Veterans World Championships in Germany.

I would like to give my sincere thanks to all of you –  also in the name of the German Fencing Federation!

I wish all participants exciting days of competitions and well-deserved medals to the best fencers!

Dieter Lammer
