    I could do épée plus some of the younger foil poules on the Saturday, but it'd cost you about £70-80 travel plus a night's accommodation tomorrow evening. If that's helpful, let me know and I'll book...

    Phil's out 15-10 to the Czech fencer - took an early lead, but the guy came back strong.

    There was huge (and loud) home crowd support stretching the length of the piste!

    Wow.

    Leon Paul just donated £100!

    Actually I think Phil qualified by right that year - the requirement was 7,500 points that year which he achieved. Had the current system been in place he would not have qualified and indeed would...

    A few points:

    1) There has been a concerted and deliberate strategy over the past decade to untangle cadet and junior selection from the senior circuit. This was always going to affect numbers.
