CONI greets the Dubai 2020 Expo with multiple Olympic short track champion Arianna Fontana and youth national team coaches in gymnastics, canoeing, taekwondo, basketball and tambourine ball).
The blue medallist in the history of the Games was the last of the sporting excellences that Italy showcased in the four events scheduled in the Italian Pavilion at the World Expo hosted in the United Arab Emirates.
Under the CONI flag, in addition to Ms Fontana, there were the medallists of the Italia Team at Tokyo 2020, who animated the debates of the Italian Dialogues, and the technicians of numerous sports federations who put on a practical demonstration of CONI's sports orientation and initiation projects: the CONI Centres, Educamp and the CONI Trophy.
Children from all over the world and present at Expo were thus able to experience the multidisciplinary proposal, offered in the form of a game that Italian sport, with CONI, has brought to international attention.
With the claim 'From the game to the Games,' the 'Azzurri', exceptional ambassadors of our country, were the leading players, together with the children, of Italian excellence in sport. From the established champions to the promising youngsters: a project on which CONI works, with its territorial organisation and all the sports bodies, from the earliest years of children's lives, to follow them in their growth, to help them discover their talent and to ensure that sport accompanies them in their lives and, perhaps, leads some of them to one day stand on the Olympic podium.
