Even the Olympic fencing in Rio 2016 she participated on her return from Rome. “A refugee three hours at the airport, worried about my father who was in the car and skipped training”
The bag with the swords wet with rain, the gym where the fence was flooded and became impassable. Rossella Viamengo returns to CataniaThe two-time world champion as well as the Olympic silver medalist at Rio 2016 and the team’s bronze medalist in Tokyo last summer, was a real nightmare.
“I trained in Rome for a few days and I was supposed to be back on Monday 25 October. But all flights to Palermo, Lamezia Terme and Ragusa have been diverted: Catania airport is closed. I gave up, and intend to try again the next day. Tuesday’s 26th flights seemed regular, so I was encouraged and left.” But at that moment the problems began: «The journey was peaceful, butCatania was again in the storm
And we had to wait 40 minutes in the sky before we could land.” However, Fontanarossa Airport was just ghostly and water came from everywhere. “When the bags arrived, they were soaked. For three hours I took refuge in the office of a friend who works there, with so much apprehension for my father that the flood shut him down in the street.”
Something never seen in Catania («At most, it rains similar to the monsoon, but it does not last long; Instead it’s a constant storm and doesn’t seem to be signs of ending») A more complicated scenario is because Etna’s recent eruption caused the ash to turn into mud. “The motorway to Taormina is also in poor condition. When a friend was able to take me home, I felt like I was on a ship.” Another nasty surprise that Rossella encountered when she learned that the gym was soaked in water and impractical: “Training skippedI hope to be able to resume as soon as possible because the World Cup resumes in November.” The blue heroine posted photos and reflections on Instagram, her favorite social network. But he has something to add: “I think of those who died and those who were badly damaged. After all, it went well for me. ”
