  1. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    I know, it's excessive for modern pentathlon, just select best 20 athletes, max 2 per country... but as you said, Ivar Sisniega is one of the masterminds behind the program so no chance for a reduction there. I'm surprised about CPE decision tough
  2. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    I wonder why, if they increased quotas in other sports, couldn't they add a couple more individual spots, given that fencing has seen some growing in the continent during the last 5 years.

  6. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    It breaks my heart that even if they managed to get the quota, their NOCS refuse to send the athletes I really pray for Canada's Olympic Committee to reconsider and send their best (and biggest) delegation possible. Otherwise I think they could end outside top 5.
  7. Mexico confirmed a delegation of 634 competitors. Names probably to come in the following days Today ends the period to register athletes, so probably tomorrow we could have news about size of other teams.
  8. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    At least, Mexico managed to get a medal. I was afraid we could end up without one. @intoronto results are in, and these are the qualifiers for 2019 Pan Am Games: Men's Epee: + John Edison RODRIGUEZ & Pablo NUÑEZ Women's Sabre: + Aimara TABLADA PIMIENTA & Eileen GRENCH
  9. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    And good results continue for your fencers. Glad for them
  10. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    Well it all started back in 2016, just weeks before the Olympics. At that time, Paola Pliego was reported to have failed a drug test made by the local authorities, so as the investigation continued, she was provisionally suspended and excluded from the Mexican delegation. Some time later, a German lab with WADA recognition analized the same sample and found nothing wrong with it. From then on, she has been vocal about being framed by our own federation because she belongs to a local association that does not support the current president (of the Mexican Fencing Federation, that is). This season she was often snubbed and unsupported at every World Cup in which she could have competed, but the real offense came in March when it was announced that she wasn't selected for the CAC Games, due to "formalities"; essentiality, she wasn't allowed to compete in the national selective, so of course she had no chance at all; furthermore, the Iberoamerican association of fencing added fuel by publicly stating their support for her and expelling Mexican Fencing Federation's president from that body. This only made him angrier and through political manipulation, he convinced the Olympic Committee and our corrupt sports arbitration tribunal to confirm Pliego's exclusion. So to sum it up, he's just being a complete douche, who is only trying to become rich by exploiting our fencers.
  11. Fencing CPE Pan-American Championships 2018

    Wonderful results for Argentina so far, especially gold in men's individual epée. Meanwhile, Mexico's competing with an average team, some of our best being kept away by the childish and corrupt behaviour of our NF president, who especially has a feud against our best fencer in women's senior sabre (Paola Pliego) What a waste with so many years of continuous growth being hurt by one men's ambition of being president for life.

  14. Diving FINA World Cup 2018

    Final day of 2018 World Cup and the hosts completed their swept of the gold medals. Nothing else to say, besides being happy with divers from "non-traditional countries" like Ireland, France and the Netherlands gaining spot for the top level competition next year. These are the last couple of results.

  15. Field Hockey 2018 Discussion Thread

    If I understood correctly, only the winners gained direct qualification: those are in women and in men. Mexican teams having finished in second will have to wait until all other tournaments finish to be completed and see if their ranking is enough to advance to next round. Correction @Vojthas, it seems the first two were given spots, after I found this article today.
