    The Mens Epee final was a joke. I know I know "they're team mates" but frankly? That's no excuse.

    Poor show, literally! I think the only thing that would have helped in this case was the ref or someone from the organisation going up to them and telling them off or belittling them into putting up a fight.

    The women's was pretty bad too. One defensive fencer who wasn't going to risk the first attack no matter what and the other girl who had to decide when to roll the dice. As it turns out in the third period I think after two rollovers. Unfortunately for the match the defensive girl got the hit and then the Italian was into the chasing game. Boring!

    On the upside I did like the lady commentator. An American lady called Iris? Funny and knowledgeable.

    That's Iris Zimmerman. She was pretty good...

    Although she was a foilist.

    I actually thought the Womens Epee final was better.

    Iris has been a top fencer for many years and is very knowledgeable. Good to have informed commentators.

    For a great Men's Final feel free to view Elite Epee Grand Final which took place on the same weekend..- https://www.facebook.com/eliteepee/v...6951005172985/
