My name is Andreas Douvis and I am an International FIE referee  from Greece in all three weapons, foil, eppe and  sabre. I participated in the Youth Olympic Games 2018 Buenos Aires and will be in the Olympic Games in TOKYO 2020-1.

  • I have experienced as a referee matches between players in high level competitions such as Olympic Games and World Championships. I lead Fencing competitions between athletes of all ages and competition level, from Olympic and World champions to athletes competing for the first time! My role is to serve and faithfully apply the official Rules of fencing so that I can always secure that all athletes despite gender, color, or Nationality compete fair and equal!! I raise my whitecard for fair play, equality and to commit to the development of Fencing and it’s values worldwide.
