The Five-time National Champions with the trophy
The path to the fifth championship in a row was not easy, so this trophy has an even more special meaning. The athletes, coaches and staff are to be congratulated for an achievement that is absolutely historic in the sport.
In this moment of success, I must highlight the role played by our Members and supporters in this final phase of the Championship. Both at home and in Fafe, the support was outstanding.
