some good shots of the fencing at the Olympics from the officle FIE photographer (good work if you can get it).


personal favs are the high jumping attack and the foot on the chest attack (not to be tried at home)...

I love the MF photo where the French guy has his foot on the Italian's chest...wonder wht that was about (and whether a card was given).

A few "unflattering" shots of Vezzali, though...

This only confirms the reputation for male sabreurs keeping their brains in their off target areas.

Himself would only agree with me.

If it was up to you lot, fencing would be replaced in he Olympics by female, naked mud-wrestling... :rolleyes:

Don't encourage them.

Just let them know that we prefer the male fencers with nice tight bums to wear suitably tight breeches in the rear and baggy enough to not make us sick in the front. (I'm still mildly traumatised by the slow motion action replays of Linford Christie winning medals.)

As we will never stop them oogling, we can at least lay down some guidelines on what is most likely to get appreciative,... stares.

And campaign for more fencing on TV. Preferably down the piste shots with plenty of toned athletes competing,...

The jumping foillist is not so great when you realise that his left hand is pulling on a secret wire especially installed for acts of fencing levetation.

Very cool!
What's with the kicking though?
I agree about the breeches, I seem to notice LP have quite a nice "stretch" in them;)
