Mayor Betsy Price swears in members of Fort Worth's delegation to the Tricolore Games during a June City Council meeting."

Nearly 80 student-athletes and coaches returned from a week of competition at the Tricolore Youth Sports Games in Reggio Emilia, Italy, where they won three gold and one bronze medal in baseball and volleyball.

The athletes and coaches will be recognized at the Fort Worth City Council meeting at 7 p.m. Aug. 14.

The sports ambassadors competed and lived in an Olympic-style village with student-athletes from 30 other countries. The games offered a chance for the athletes to convey a positive impression of American youth to delegates from around the world.

“The programs sponsored by Sister Cities have a broad appeal offering of international experiences you can’t get as casual tourists,” said Sister Cities Sports Games chair Michael Jacobsson. “The student-athletes will remember this trip for the rest of their lives.”

The Tricolore Games are held every four years in Reggio Emilia, Italy, which is one of Fort Worth’s sister cities. Fort Worth was the only U.S. city invited to participate.
