    ???
    There is at least one fencer that has entered and is not in the top 20 of the rankings though. Perhaps, most people who weren't in the top 20 didn't know they could ask the be entered? There was a lack of communication between BF and the women sabreurs since I remember when they used to email all the fencers but this year I know those that I have spoken to didn't recieve an email. And most of the young fencers who may have done it and din't have exams possibly just didn't know much about the event since they don't keep up to date with the senior circuit?

    They're all in the top 20 of the December senior rankings, as was the requirement.

    Can someone who is going give me an idea of total cost, official hotel is pretty expensive at £135/night when you need at least 2 nights and 3 if you want to watch the team event?

    Whilst I don't want to add fuel to the fire I will clarify the point that as someone just outside the top 20 in December (22), and 20th as of Jan 1st I asked if it would be possible to attend if the 20 places were not filled for experience and to improve my fencing. However, this was declined by the PD in kind, polite and prompt response. The new selection criteria leaves it to the performance teams discretion to fill places and that is their choice. I do think it's a shame that the places were not at least filled by Juniors/Cadets even if I wasn't deemed a good enough candidate.

    Good luck to all those competing!!!

    I didn't realise it was off the December rankings not January and that doesn't seem fair. It isn't as if the senior rankings are so widespread and there were only roughly 177 points between yourself and 20th place. The rankings don't really accurately show who are the best fencers since the points are so close in many cases.

    That was the date announced by the selection committee, they need to have a cut off date, so I don't think it is unfair that, that was the line taken. Just a shame the spots weren't filled.

    Poules in the first wave finished now.

    Results on Orphardt not correct while the poules are incomplete, which is not helpful.

    Dixon 424140 ind -10
    Roberts 0V222V ind -4
    Hutchison (snr) 123021 ind -21
    McMillan DDDDDD but not sure about indicators
    Pleasant V331V0 ind -10

    The commentators do not know much about sabre it would appear.

    Is there a live feed somewhere Hokers? I've been following it on fencingworldwide.com, or are you actually there?

    No propaganda this time at least, but sabre clearly isn't their strongest commentary weapon.

    Is it Karim and David King commentating this time or another team of commentators?

    When does the pre tableau start?

    How many are through the pools and into the DE out of our 12 fencers?
