Results and ranking
The Men’s World Championship is an opportunity to spread a message of hope and tolerance and with this in mind, the captains and coaches of the six teams due to compete in Florence received special t-shirts produced to commemorate 100 years since Mandela’s birth while attending Tuesday’s media meeting.
At the end of their training session at Mandela Forum, the full Italian national team paid a visit to a replica of the prison cell where Mandela spent 27 years of his life. The Azzurri took a special photo to commemorate this moment and pay tribute to such an outstanding leader and personality as the former President of South Africa.
