Also operating in the Italian territory as head judge in 2 competitions, at the same time he created the Southern Warriors introducing for the first time in Europe open water workouts, all in wild territories. Over the years the competition has grown in importance attracting foreign athletes by its diversity from the usual throwdowns.
