    Default WE World Cup Tallinn

    Great start for Kat Smith, winning 5 out of 6 poule fights and getting bye to the last 64 as 13th out of poules.

    Tougher for Hannah Nesbitt (2 up, missing cut by 2 hits) and Frankie Summers (1 up) cut after 1st round.

    Tia Simms Lymn (JAM) gets through poule with 3 up 3 down. Tia wins 1st DE against Kuroki JPN 15-9, but still has 2 fights to get through to last 64.

    Kat lost in the last 64 6-4, however her opponent went on to win the whole event, winning all her other matches bar one by 4 or more hits.

    Great performance by Kat, but to lose to eventual winner in a close match is just one of those things..

    Err - yes sorry I realise I meant to ask how your Estonian was these days

    I was watching/reading through this on Sunday and wondering if the Estonian period has now passed.

    I am sure it has been covered before - but I find it amazing that such a small country has produced both a strong team and a number of strong individuals. I am sure the two are linked.

    On presentation - not wanting to drag into that conversation too much. I am hoping that Richard and Ziemek are interviewed even if it is just LP driven at the LP centre or a short podcast. moving towards 10 world cups and beyond would be amazing.

    Kohutav!

    I think they all train in one town together, Tallin is it? So while they may not have a large population, it's very concentrated. They also have some very good home grown coaches who were themselves very successful epeeists. They do a camp there I think and I'd love to get my two over to that.

    Looking at the age spread of the Estonian women I'd say they'll be a force to reckon with for some years to come. Whenever I want to point out efficient, purposeful footwork to my two it's usually the Estonians that I turn to on Youtube. It can be less obvious when they're fighting an equally high level team but if you see some video of them fencing a much lower ranked team then the difference is striking.
