About Olimpici GP
Olimpici Grand Prix is a new competition series in the world of Hungarian epée-fencing. Győző Kulcsár, our great fencing master and olympic champion has founded the Olimpici Public Benefit Foundation together with his enthusiastic team. The idea is based on a concept to give new stamina for the upcoming generation of epée-fencers.
The participants have four age-groups as we reordered them from the season of 2009/2010 – according to the proffesional decision of the Olimpici Public Fundation. Now the structures could be more sensitive to the knowledge, experience in specific age-groups… plus, we created a new age-group for the real beginner but up-to-competition generation, called Törpici /Mini in english/.
Törpici / Minies (born after 01.01.2003.)
They are not allowed to compete in other age groups!
They need a permission signed by their parents AND coach, stamped officially by their fencing club! Without permission fencers are not allowed to join our Grand Prix.
Gyermek / Kids (born between 01.01.2001. – 31.12.2002.)
Újonc / Novices (born between 01.01.2000. – 31.12.2002.)
Serdülő / Adolescents (born between 01.01.1999. – 31.12.2002.)
The competition has irregular methods:
Minies: Three rounds, no tableau, no elimination! The first two rounds determine ranking for the third where the first eight (could be less or more, according to index number of fencers) fence for the 1st place in the final round. Others fence for placements. All rounds run with more pools with less (four or five) fencers in. The bouts run for FOUR HITS with TWO MINUTES fencing time.
Weapons must be fitted with blade size ZERO, and small bell guard. This is compulsory!
Kids: Two rounds with no elimination. This determines ranking list for the third. The first 24 fencers go onto tableau 32, bouts are for ten hits. (This is an uncomplete tableau of 32, means the first 8 wait for their opponents). From place 25 competitors fence for placements in poules again (for five hits).
Novices: Two rounds, no elimination! The comulative ranking of the two rounds gives the tableau that has direct elimination. From the tableau of 16 there is consolation(repechage) applied.
Adolescents: One round, no elimination! Everyone goes onto direct tableau, but on tableau of 32 there is consolation(repechage) applied.
