wow! great win for our foil girls...

it was time for a bit of satisfaction...:rofl:

I must admit that I didn't expect them to win and especially I didn't expect Volpi to deliver like she did...:hatoff:

and to be honest, I didn't expect also the epee boys to get a medal, especially after the really painful loss to the Russians in the semifinal bout...Russians who proved themselves on fire...and don't tell me that anybody saw the team epee Gold medal coming to the "Sbornaja"...

so, now we're safe and we won't end these champs with a shameful 0 in the Gold medal column...let's see if tomorrow we can improve in the last day...

women's epee confirms itself as the weakest weapon for Italy, with our girls just not good enough even to make the semifinals...:cry::facepalm::wall::thumbdown::spank:

meanwhile, in the men's team sabre we're at the quarterfinals: ITA vs GEO and FRA vs GER in the top half of the draw, RUS vs ROU and UKR vs HUN in the bottom half of the draw...

wow! Estonia lose their semifinal to France...so, no team Gold for them after the amazing triple in the individual event...

meanwhile, on the men's side, Russia lose to Romania in the quarterfinals...and this is the only assault gone against the ranking...all the other favourites are through to the last 4...

so, the European Champs 2018 are over...

 

Russia dominated from start to (almost) finish...

France were their closest rivals, but really far behind...but still, they were competitive and won medals in almost every discipline, which is more than expected...

Italy end up 3rd in the medal table despite the worst performance at a global championship since a very long while...but I hope this has been just a bad week, otherwise it would be scary in perspective...

6 different Nations won at least 1 Gold medal (which would be good, if only Russia didn't get Gold in half of the scheduled events) and 10 Countries are present in the overall medal table (which is not good...in recent years we often had more than that)...

 

2018 European Championships Final Medal Table

 

RUS,  6 / 2 / 3
FRA,  2 / 2 / 2
ITA,  1 / 4 / 3
EST,  1 / 2 / 2
GER,  1 / 0 / 2
HUN,  1 / 0 / 0
POL,  0 / 1 / 3
UKR,  0 / 1 / 1
CZE,  0 / 0 / 1
GEO,  0 / 0 / 1
