Wind of change

2018. augusztus 23.

Hi for everyone!

First of all we are glad that we had many foreign fencers in also our last season, so thank You, thank You, thank You! For coming, for being interested, for trusting, and being on our pistes!
The wind of change started to whiffle. Nothing last forever. Everything is in change, as Olimpici Grand Prix has also transformed constantly since it was found in 2006. The story probably reached an other milestone.
It is still unsteady what will happen from this season, but István Lukáts, the president of the board of the Olimpici Public Foundation has resigned. The competitions of the upcoming age-groups was joined and kept together by the Olimpici movement, but probably all these competitions will be driven completely by the Hungarian Fencing Federation.

István Lukáts the engineer personage, who has been constantly presence in organising, brainstorming and running the competitions has sent a letter to the founder Győző Kulcsár olympian, and it is published here too, for the request of Mr. Lukáts.

Addressee:
Győző Kulcsár
Founder, Athlete of the Hungarian nation
Dear Master!
I resign today from the Olimpici Public Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
Thank you so much for your support in the last 12 years, as a result – I truly think – we could make the upcoming épée generation very successful.
It is proved by the result of cadet, junior and even adult fencers growing up on the Olimpici GP’s competition system. And even by the Olimpici crowd of 22 nations’ fencers.
Wishing you more success, your sincerely:
István Lukáts
Outgoing president of the board of the Olimpici Public Foundation
aug. 21. 2018.

 

As most of us could seen him: organiser, proud, happy and he congratulate! It was nice, it was nice István Lukáts!

 

Additionaly we can serve the GP dates of the season of 2018/19:

02–03–04. of November, 2018. – Debrecen (Hajdúhadház)

Merry Xmas!

2017. december 25.

The Szolnok Cup has gone with an irregular mode, since its date had never been this close to Christmas before. The organiser Szolnoki Sportcentrum made it even more festive to put a nice xmas decoration in the hall, beside this it provided a useful option in spite of their own hall which is now bearing the “under construction” sign.
Alltogether we had 16+8 pistes to run the GP2, which has received 652 registrations. Many thanks to all the participants for joining us; to the Szolnok fencing crew with Edina Szatmári on the lead; to Pál B. Nagy for his presence, to Imre Nagy, Tímea Nagy, Géza Imre, Péter Somfai for helping in the awarding ceremonies and being heroic example, to PBT, Leon Paul Hungary, János Vida and Semerédy family for their support.

There is nothing more to write:
Santa Claus has brought the ranking lists, the documentation of events and photoalbums of GP2 – Szolnok Cup are already available in our menus.
Merry Xmas, and a pleasant relaxation for everyone!

The invitation of GP2 and its changes

2017. november 24.

Dear foreign participants,
the invitation of GP2 Szolnok has finally arrived. As we pronounced before, we try to re-adjust the formulas, as the number of participants are high and still growing. It’s not an easy task to satisfy all the competitors and their coaches, and even parents, and beside this keep a smooth running of the competitions, keeping the formulas practicable, and also keep the values of our ars poetica what we always want to keep, and provide strong and successful competitors to the world of épée.

At this moment we are not still there what we want, and we need more time to discuss on all edges, but for Szolnok we’ve changed few things.
For friday’s kid competitions we reset the timing, and we start an hour earlier. Boys start at 10.00, and girls at 14.00, with a two-way system, which is up to the number of the registered fencers.
We also wanted to re-adjust the minis’ formula, but in Szolnok they will have their own hall, and we decided to keep their tableau 16 with repechage for this chance, but the poules will run with fewer fencers in the rounds and in the placement round too.
We’ll try to figure out something even more accurate and better for Budapest, and the future.
Please keep in mind that the date and location of GP3 Budapest has changed. Check it out!

A report of GP1

2017. november 7.

First of all sorry, we did not closed the previous season in a news: not much to say, but thank You for all of You teams from outside of Hungary, travelling loads of kms to get to our competitions, and also congratulations for those who are receiving medals, good placements, or simple just expereinces! We are glad that we’re all here together, for each other!

We weren’t quick writing this report. We’ve got tired during this huge season opening, which this time have really been a Grand Prix, a Big Cup. We all participated the most crowded competition in the history of Olimpici GP since 2006, becasue this time in the eight competitions 758 athletes have been registered by the organiser Békessy Béla Fencing Club, which has been organised with its usual routine, and operated the event. Congratulations!

We also congratulate a young man who could be heard first time during of the GP in Hajdúhadház: Máté Lasztovicza was an Olimpici-fencer, later an Olimpici-referee, then became a proper, adult referee. He is now practising with his mentor János Vida, how to be a proper member of the Directoire Technique. Mr. Vida going to retire soon, and we would like to know somebody young, reliable in our team. As he is like that, welcome Máté on board!

During Olimpici-seasons our GP has become quite popular for Hungarian and also for foreign fencers more and more, and now we have reached a critical point in number of participants. This can, and will pushing us to change its organisation in some ways in the future.
We see the critical corners, and we promise we think over where to go meanwhile carefully protect the competitors and our targets. In this we kindly ask your patience, not an easy issue, but either the next invitation letter will be effected.
One thing is for sure: we cannot create such a competition which is suitable for all: athletes, coaches, parents. Resented have always been around, and will be. But we have our goal, which is still following and keep up with the values of Győző Kulcsár’s ars poetica, and so Olimpici GP.. the prime goal is working for the future of hungarian épée.

Boy’s cup is overhead: the winner is Matvei Kozhevnikov, UKR

Also an important news that we would like to motivate the most younger fencers with a new pair of rover cup. The newly founded cups were awarded first time in Hajdúhadház: the cup of mini boys is sponsored by the Hungarian Men’s Épée Team, and the cup of mini girls is sponsored by Péter Semerédy, who is a father of a son and daughter from the crowd of Olimpici athletes. Mr. Semerédy is supporting the Olimpici Public Fundation for five year with the sum of 100000 HUF. So, we proudly pronounce that the founder of mini girls’ rover cup is the Semerédy Family. Their generosity is exemplary!

The cup of boys were handed over by Péter Somfai, represented the Hungarian Men’s Épée Team

 

The cup of girls’ were handed over by Alexandra Semerédy represented the Semerédy Family

 

The girls’ cup is overhead: the winner is Veronika Kravchuk, UKR

The documentations and photoalbums are already available. At this moment  only the final results act as ranking lists , but soon will be done too, as the invitation of GP2.

We could not hand over two LuckyPi System PBT-vouchers:
In kid girls: Jakobi Júlia, PTE-PEAC; and a novice girl Marusenka Maryana, Belarus has won a 10000 HUF voucher. At the next competition please turn up for it at the DT.

Iron crowd in Iron County

2017. március 16.

“West is the best” – cited from a song of The Doors, but really: in this cute, most western GP location Bük in Vas (which means iron) county usually makes one of the lower numbers in our events. This usual have been broken this year when the keen organisers of Szombathely Fencing Academy Sport Club registered 590 entrants altogether. And they have done well again, asking support from
one of the most wellknown in Europe, second biggest in Hungary waterpark/spa..called Bükfürdő Health and Adventure Centre which provided discounted access during Bükfürdő Cup.


The organisers had also really cool exemplar fellows for giving the awards: as a referee of three whole days, Renáta Petri felt great joining the awarding ceremonies too. She is a cadet World Champion medalist from last year and cadet European Champion; besides the Rio Olympics women epeé gold team member of Romania, Simona Pop, and of course Géza Imre Olympic silver Champ who presented himself at the competition with his pupils.. he also joined the awarding crew with joy.

Beside all these successful fencers the local force appeared in helping too: president of the local club, Csaba Babós, mayor of Bük Sándor Dr. Németh as well as Szilárd Kerekes co-president of local Touristic Office.

From the menu all the documentations are available, photoalbums as well and the updated ranking lists. Please check that out, in case of any mistake send us an e-mail, and we’ll have time to correct if before GP5 Csaba Cup.

Have a successful preparation for the last available GP for foreign fencers in the season of 2016/17.

Reminder for pre-registration and so

2017. március 7.

Dear all,
we just would like to remind you all that we have changed the method how we receive registrations. We do not take e-mails anymore, in spite for each GPs we create a form, and the clubs have to fill up the competition’s registration form. For GP4 we have the form here: http://bit.ly/Olimpici2017_GP4

Olimpici GP competition is not dealing with names of foreign clubs anymore, all the foreign fencers will be signed by the name of their nations.

Henceforth the foreign nations of entrants must provide referees as following:
One referee: if a nation registered 4–8 entrants for an event (for example kid boys).
Two referees: if a nation registered 9, or more entrants for an event.
This is not calculated along by clubs, but along by nations, all together. So please, make an agreement with
fellow clubs.
