For nine memorable days from 2 to 11 August 2013, Torino hosted the 8th edition of the World Masters Games where nearly 20.000 people from 107 countries competed in 30 sports and enjoyed the city of Torino and the region of Piedmont.
Torino by hosting the World Masters Games once again proved its ability to host great sport events, like in the past the 2006 Winter Olympics. Gratitude and recognition mainly to all the Volunteers who gave up their time and holiday to be part of the event, and without whom there would have been no Games.
Now with EMG 2019, Torino wants to replicate and boost these events and sport experiences: the message is “Sport for life”, promoting the fact that at all ages, sport improves your health and lifestyle, but also about friendship and having fun.
We wait for You in Torino !
