Dear Admirers of Sport!


On behalf of the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation and myself I am glad to welcome all the participants, organizers and guests to the 2015 World Fencing Championships!

These significant and prestigious competitions will be held in our country for the second time in a row. Last year Kazan hosted the best fencers of the world. The main start of this season will be held in the Olympiysky sports complex of Moscow.

Among others this kind of sport is distinguished by its aesthetics, romanticism and rich history, counting thousands of years. Russia can be proud of great fencing traditions as well as the enviable popularity.

The forthcoming Championships represent a very important qualification tournament to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. That’s why we expect these competitions to show successful performance of the Russian fencers as well as great interest of spectators, guests and specialists.

I wish successful bouts and uncompromising struggle to all the participants, and a real sports festival to all the fans!
