Also present the FITAV Board Member Fiorenzo De Rosa.
Main subject of the meeting was the logistic planning related to the presence of the National University shotgun representative during the “Olympiad” reserved to student-athletes.
“Participation of shooting sports at the Universiade represents a priority for us – commented Luciano Rossi, Vice President of ISSF, International Shooting Sport Federation, and Presidential candidate at the ISSF General Assembly scheduled next Nov. 30 in Munich – Further to the exclusion of shooting sports from the sports programme of last edition of the Universiad, we strove to secure the inclusion of our events in the programme of Naples 2019, and we are proudly cooperating with the Local Organizing Committee to ensure the best outcome of the event. I believe it will be utterly important to fight for a place among the first level events”
