    Default Imre at age 41 in Olympic Final

    Just a thought, but Geza Imre from Hungary is in the Olympic men's Epee Final at the age of 41!

    It is a little-known fact that before I was MrsB I was Miss Imre; and for that fact I wish the final had gone the other way.

    So does everyone of a certain age (no offence intended).
    What time does check-in close? How far away are we?

    Of what not to do with a 4 or 5 hit lead when in the last period.

    Such a shame as I fenced at the World Under 20s with Imre, and at club in Budapest when I trained over there for a few weeks and he was great fun to fence. Would have loved him to have taken gold.

    How his knees coped with numerous duck hits was impressive. Great to see them being used so effectively in the first 2 periods.

    Thought it was interested that Steffen was written off by the commentators for 4 years time, when he will still be much younger than Imre now..
