It's a bloody summer for the italian sport... We lost the women's individual gold after 5 years :cry:

 

This was obvious...

now we have to accept the fact that Deriglazova at the moment is the the clear number #1 in this discipline, the new queen of foil...

we don't have anymore the talent (and not even the depth) we used to have...

we have to enjoy each and every medal (silver and bronze, too) like a great result, as it is (and it's always been) in the other weapons...

women's foil is no longer our Gold medals factory...and sooner we understand that, earlier we would have the chance to restart from the beginning and maybe get back where we were...but it will take a lot of time (and for sure it won't happen with the current generations)...

in this frame, I still hope in 1 or 2 "lucky single shots" (possibly at the Olympics) by Errigo and/or Di Francisca (if she can get back to her best shape, sooner or later)...

c'mon, man! the re-match of the Olympic final (between Szasz, HUN and Fiamingo, ITA...2 of the most decorated epee specialists of the last 10 years) in the round of 32...:yikes::facepalm::wall:

and Fiamingo (who won this time, after trying to waste a 14-12 lead) now has to face the former no.1 in the world, Ana Maria Popescu (Branza) from Romania in the next round...:yikes::wall:

 

p.s. not that she's ever been the slim kind of girl, but nowadays Szasz looks really overweight...she doesn't look a professional athlete at all...:facepalm:

only her immense class allows her to compete at this level...

and as expected, another tragic day for the Italian epee specialists...after the boys, also the girls had an awful day, with no one of them being able to go beyond the round of 16 (and I only forgive Fiamingo for that, since she at least first won the Olympic final re-match against Szasz, but after that, she lost to Popescu, not the weakest fencer at the start today)...:facepalm:

 

p.s. 3 Estonian girls in the semis...:yikes::bowdown:

 

now let's see how the sabre guys go...but the start is not promising (Berrè and Curatoli are set to face each other in the early rounds and Montano already lost to Deary, GBR in round #1...and finally, Samele will face Hartung, GER -no.1 of the table draw- in the round of 16)...

Curatoli is still in play, but the other Italians are out also in the men's sabre...:facepalm:

definitely, these Europeans so far are very disappointing for us...:cry:

 

by the way, the quarterfinals in the men's sabre are: Hartung (GER) vs Szilagy (HUN), S. Bazadze (GEO) vs Curatoli (ITA) in the top half of the draw and Ibragimov (RUS) vs Statsenko (UKR), Seitz (FRA) vs Danilenko (RUS) in the bottom half...
