Last Tuesday, October 12, at 5 p.m., the council chamber of the town hall of Susegana hosted the award ceremony for athletes Elia Moretton and Lisa Sanson.

Sanson, meanwhile, is part of the squad that in September 2021 won the silver medal at the World Outdoor Tug of War Championships in Spain.
“A great and beautiful surprise to receive such important and positive news – comments the Mayor Vincenza Scarpa – As for Elia Moretton, whom I have known and appreciated for many years, since her childhood, certainly news that we expected. Lisa Sanson was a welcome discovery ”.
“Beyond the excellent results, we wanted to reward two beautiful people who give a great feeling of positivity and pride of belonging – he concludes – Many are our“ beautiful ”young people even if they have not won medals or tournaments. Each one carries with him his singular excellence “.
“It was a beautiful day of pride – adds sports advisor Matteo Bardin – I must say that it has been an extraordinary year for Italy from a sporting point of view with truly exceptional results. We have also experienced this national situation, in the necessary proportions, in a small reality like ours: these sports results come above all from the small clubs and sports associations which work alongside our children on a daily basis.”.
“These realities, with pure volunteering and passion, shape our young people and make them grow as athletes but also as men and women – he concludes – These important results also give satisfaction to all these people who do good to our children “.
