FITA’s new Team Trainer is Claudio Nolano, who is currently involved in the preparation of our junior team for the forthcoming European Championships. Steven Lopez is currently spending some time in Italy and agreed to help Claudio in training the team and contribute to the combative growth of our young athletes. Lopez is enthusiastic of this break. The project is the result of his strong friendship with Claudio and Carlo Molfetta. Both Carlo and Claudio terminated their career as athletes, and now play different roles within the Italian Federation of Taekwondo, while Steven is still competing and pursuing his career plans, and I think his decision deserves respect. I wish him well with all my heart, may all his athletic dreams come true.
