The Grand Duchy will host the Junior Epee World Cup “Memorial Jean Link & Ally Doerfel” on December 4-5, 2021.
This competition organized by the Luxembourg Fencing Federation FLE with the support of the International Fencing Federation FIE and the German Fencing Federation DFB means a return on the piste. Following the CovidCheck system as well as the FORMIR protocols of the FIE, the FLE aims to offer the best possible experience to participants and spectators.
The competition is dedicated to two great fencers who recently passed away: Jean Link and Ally Doerfel. Jean Link participated in the 1960 Olympic Games and Ally Doerfel in 1972. Two times in his sports career, Link was Junior World Champion in fencing. Both remained faithful to the sport until their end.
The World Cup will take place on December 4 and 5 at the National Fencing Center. Three athletes will represent Luxembourg. Anna Zens (18), member of the Cadre Promotion of the COSL will try to repeat her excellent start of the season by finishing 6th out of 89 participants in the qualification tournament “13 Stefan-Haukler-Memoriam 2021” in Germany. On the men’s side, Joé Delli Zotti (16), the first fencer of the Sportlycée, and Ivan Pchelinste (18) will represent the colors of the Grand Duchy.

Let's make it happen – in the land of Pharaohs

On the 20th of February 2021 the FIE Executive Committee met via video conference and decided the Junior and Cadet World Championships 2021 will be staged in Cairo. The FIE points out that the conditions and requirements put in place in the context of COVID-19 required several months of work and considerable efforts at all levels. Thanks to these measures, the Egyptian Fencing Federation is now honored to welcome young participants deprived of competitions during the past year to the city of pharaohs. The Junior and Cadet World Championships 2021 will start on the 3rd and end on the 11th of April.
Luxembourg is represented by three young athletes: Anna Zens, who has already qualified for the World Championships twice in her sports career, as well as Philipp Zens and Niklas Prinz, who will make their debut in Cairo. All three athletes will compete on the 9th of April.

World Fencing Day
FIE to spend 1,000,000 CHF in COVID-Support
Decisions of the Executive Committee (ComEx)
FIE ComEx decided in its virtual July Meeting to allocate 1,000,000 CHF in support to national federations. The FLE-Board will decide shortly how the support will be distributed in Luxembourg. FLE President Pascal Tesch, who is also a board member of the FIE executive stresses the extraordinary measures taken. “We had to cancel the Junior’s World Championship, that was a very difficult decision to take. With the pandemic still increasing in violence it was however the only reasonable outcome. Thanks to the founds given to the FIE by president Usmanov, we could however distribute a huge support to the federations. Besides we are working tirelessly towards resuming the olympic qualification. We stay optimistic for Tokyo 202One”
