LAUSANNE, Switzerland (July 14) – The International Fencing Federation announces the launch of its official Olympic Games Press Kit for Rio 2016.
The 18-page booklet is the go-to media guide for Fencing at the Olympic Games.
It is available in four languages: English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
Printed versions of the Press Kit will be available at the Carioca Arena 3 before and during the Games.
The Press Kit contains a bite-sized history on Olympic fencing, explains the qualification system, and provides the current world rankings to help journalists prepare as thoroughly as possible for “the greatest show on earth.”
There is also a helpful “Fencing at a Glance” section, which details each weapon and explains how the rules vary from discipline to discipline.
The Olympic fencing competition runs from August 6-14 at the Carioca Arena 3 in Barra Olympic Park, Rio de Janeiro.
