    Didn't listen to very much this time, but did note that they got a guest commentator in for sabre as well, which is an area neither are strong in. Good decision as his commentary was well informed...

    I agree, I was really commenting about breadth. Certainly didn't have a European champion and a WCG champion going into previous Worlds.

    Not enough people with size 13 feet out there, must be a pretty limited audience.
    Pity as I could do with some new shoes, but I'm a 12.

    Again, despite the temptation to dive in with both boots on, I'd say there's a wider problem in most weapons where there aren't enough fencers who want to take up the option of international places...

    Have to start somewhere when rebuilding those burned bridges..

    Definitely good to see some effort going into this - better refereeing means better comps and hopefully better international fencers.

    The hard ones to understand are the compound attacks given against a failed parry. They look all the world like attack-no for foot to me, you can see the confusion on some of the faces about these.

    I'll chip in to say that I also think the commentary is poor.
    It's *better* for foil but pretty bad for sabre.

    Need to practice extending the arm before you move your foot to lunge, so your hand naturally leads the foot.

    Probably missed the overnight deadline, I expect they'll pick it up fairly quickly.

    Am all in favour of bikini use for promotion of our sport. Perhaps we get some lame ones made so they conduct?
