The wheelchair fencing at the Paralympics runs from September 18 to 23. What chance BBC, Eurosport, or anyone else covering that?

I saw in the paper yesterday or the day before that there is a British sabreur there and, unless I misinterpreted it, he has a good chance.

I still think it will be ignored by the BBC, though. :(

BBC has a page about David Heaton here, (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/other_sports/disability_sport/3552030.stm) who is fencing in the men's epee today.

He made it to the quarter finals of the Men's Sabre but got knocked out.

Still an excellent result, well done David!

Has anyone a link to a footage clip of a paralympic foil fencing?

They showed the male sabreur fencing on Tv about 2-3 days ago. Was on for about 5 minutes interviewing the fencer and showing his fights. It also showed Laszlo his coach. It was great to watch as i have never really seen paralympic fencing before.
