    Summarise the above as "control the controllables" and don't worry about the rest.
  2. Stressful, under-pressure fencing?

    I know for a fact that the top 5 selected fencers in MF and WF were sent their selection letters yesterday. I cannot confirm the Sabre and Epee, as I am only a foil selector but I presume so.

    Let me suggest reasons why a team may not have been announced.
    1) A selected fencer was late in replying.

    Sorry to dissent, but by giving byes to the wrong people, or at least those for whom there is no actual ranking justification, you deprive others of the chance to make the second day. This could have...

    I had an inkling this was going to happen. I suspect it will have to do with the byes given to the foreign fencers.
