Italian National Teams' staff has nominated the youth team that will play World Championships in Sochi next 10th to 13th August.
Also in Italy this year the nominations have been made quite early, without using the most important tournaments of the year (Italian championship overall and youth) as a selection criteria, due to the problem of getting al documents and visas to enter Russian Federation.
Having only 3 members of the technical staff available for the journey, it has been decided to carry 8 youth players to Sochi: 7 will play in the team and the 8th will act as fourth coach.
These are the nomination:
Bellucci Lorenzo, Bellucci Nicola, Brunner Simon, Ciompi Lorenzo, Laimer Hannes, Levis Lorenzo, Prestinari Emanuele, Unterhauser Kurt
Levis Mauro, Porta Paolo, Zischg Stefan
All the 7 players that played last year in Waldshut will come to Sochi, so the team will try to improve the 5th place of last year having 1 year more experience.
The team will arrive in sochi on Thursday 5th August.
