    The World Championships are usually broadcast live on Eurosport. In past years, anyway. Have coincidentally been overseas on holiday at world championship time for the past 2 years so can't be sure...

    Absolutely. L16, L32 and a L64 and 11th in the team is a positive weekend for the guys. Glad to see them making it work sans performance programme funding.

    It's an old term that for some reason many many people still use (myself included at times), also for senior events, but has long been officially replaced with World Cup/Grand Prix events.

    So without intending to be rude or critical towards James Davis, I wonder if anyone has any idea why his results have dropped so significantly since Rio? Has he had injuries? No longer training...

    There was a very big debate about this a couple of months ago on this forum, which resulted in a very heated debate and ended up being slanderous and I think the thread got deleted.

    Well, the debate on who should wear the stripes/patches gets aired pretty much every year, so I won't go into that yet again.

    On the actual new design, it's poor. Let's not pretend otherwise. The...

    No one disagrees with you, and I understand that you have been very hard done to over recent times, but the incessant Alex Newton bashing in every single thread is perhaps just a little too much,...

    Massive thank you to all those volunteering time to referee (or do any other role) at the BYC's, the Senior Nationals, or any other event.

    It's not like this is even the first time something like that has happened. It's such a poor event, and it has been poor for years. This weekend was the first time I've attended since I had a...

    Absolutely amazes me that of all the big old 6W opens, this is the one that somehow survives whilst much better events have disappeared.

    I'm very happy that I am not a female epeeist today......

    To me it just makes really little sense to commit to a tournament too far in advance. Sometimes of course I want to see who else is entering, but for larger events where you know the field will be...

    Those Birmingham numbers are actually very heavily down in some weapons compared to just a few years ago, so probably not the best example!! That's about a third of what they used to get for MS!

    Regardless of whether you like the format and regardless of comparisons to other events, this is unreasonably harsh.
    There's been a noticeable, decent upturn in numbers in every weapon. You can't...
