    Ran Italy closer than I expected, and Kamal proved that he poses significant problems to top fencers. Let's hope he keeps working and that continues when he is better known rather than the new kid on the block.

    Shame that James didn't have the greatest of matches. At a 35:37 deficit, I though we were in with a shot. So to go down 37:45 was a little disappointing in the end.

    Of course the results update service is down right now. Ophardt are really poor! To quote a person I will not name, but does know what they are talking about "they are stuck in the 1960s".

    MFT this morning
    GBR seeded 13th beat Sweden 45-27 in the L32,
    vs Italy in the L16 lose 37-45
    vs Ukraine for 9-16

    No RK remember, so this is Davis, Mepstead, Minott
    Just shows how much difference the ranking makes! GBR are 13th on 135 points, having entered only 4 team comps this season.

    Germany are 9th on 149 points from 6 comps entered and draw Chile in the L16.

    Shows that you HAVE to enter enough team events throughout the year to build enough ranking to give yourself any chance in the major championships. The weaker zonal championships outside Europe make a huge difference in terms of "easy" points, Brazil are 8th with only one individual in the top 50!

    Not even a consolation bout for Peggs all day as reserve, first 3 did every match. Bet he's glad he flew all that way..

    Hoping its just a system error as that would be pretty cruel, especially against a team like Egypt for 13/14 placing...

    Glad to see we achieved our team seeding, but the draw was not too kind to us.

    Italy in the 16 was a mountain to climb.

    That's like comparing 2 ferrari's racing with 2 20 year old beat up fiat uno's.

    There is no comparison.

    Guys can we just keep this to World Championships.

    Don't know about the rest of you but my hero is probably Erwann LePechoux after he took the french mens foil team to a bronze (let's face it, HE did all the work there).

    Although full contact epee comes a close second.

    Iran had a good run against Hungary in the L8...only losing by 3.

    Then they beat France in the 5-8 tableau match by 2, and beat Romania by 2 in the 5-6, finishing in 5th overall.

    Where are they training?
