I really dont know whats going on with Ebert ... just the fact that she still competes in this age category shows that she isnt very confident. By now she should dominate at this level, but it looks as if she at the moment isnt better than 2 or 3 years ago. I hope she will recover soon! 

On the other hand very good for Eifler finally, she always was a big talent but never was able to show it at the big stage.

Todays semifinals:

Mens foil (starting at 19:45 CET live on Youtube):

:RUS Borodachev vs. :ITA Marini

:USA Tourette vs. :GER Klein

Womens epee (starting at 19:00 CET live on Youtube):

:ITA Bozza vs. :HUN Petri

:ITA Cagnin vs. :USA Stewart

 

Some observations:

Russia, France and the big asian nations seem to be weaker than in the past. Italy and USA are still very strong. Singapore is extremely strong so far and in my opinion the biggest surprise. Poland seems to have a pretty good depth, but they are a bit unlucky so far. 

From a german perspective:

We really improved on cadet level, i never thought that we could win 2 individual medals "without" Ebert.

Especially in womens sabre (where we finally seem to have a good talent) and mens foil (where we had the number 1 seed and one other athlete in the semifinal) the results are very positive for us.

Its still annoying that there are no team events on cadet level, this year we couldve won medals in womens sabre and mens epee.

Extremely dominant performance by Tourette in mens foil, noone scored more than 8 points (Klein in the semifinal) against him! :yikes:

so, Italy (3-1-3) top the Medal Table ahead of the USA (2-2-2) at the end of the Cadet competitions (OK...tomorrow there's still the Mixed Team Relay, but I refuse to take that as a serious event, since there is absolutely no technical sense in it)...

Same standings in the Nations Cup (244 points for Italy against 210 for the USA), where France (122 pts) are the 3rd team, unlike it happened in the Medal Table...

Quite disappointing Russia and France so far, very disappointing the usual Asian powerhouses China and South Korea, replaced by the surprising Singapore as a Gold Medal winner), only decent participation by Hungary among the other expected top Nations...

Final words for Geoffrey Tourette, winner today in the Men's Foil...what a talent he is...I just can't wait to see him among the "big boys"...by now, he's definitely the overall MVP of the Cadet Worlds (and I expect him to dominate the Junior event, too)...

Kirill Borodachev today has not been outclassed by Geoffery Tourette, but it's Sylvie Binder that finally gives the USA the Gold Medal in the Cadets Mixed Team event, leading her team to a 60-57 win over the Russians...

Italy (beaten by the Russian at the last hit in the semifinals) won the Bronze Medal, outscoring Hungary 60-50...

 

Tomorrow the Juniors make their first appearance in this tournament with the Women's Individual Foil and the Men's Individual Sabre...

Breaking News from the "big boys"...

Aldo Montano (ITA, Sabre specialist) tomorrow will undergo a not so simple surgery to his shoulder, which he got injured in the early stages of the season (he has not competed anymore since his Padua triumph about 2 months ago)...

He's expected to fully recover in time for the Rio Olympics, but he will almost surely miss the upcoming Team World Championships...

Another horrible performance by Ebert, she is the far most talented athlete in this age group, but completely lost her shape. By now she should be dominating at this level. I guess we will never come back to where we belong if we dont decide to spend some money for good coaches.
