Pakdaman in quarterfinal, now one more match to win a historical medal. :pope:

 

PS: This is already Iran's best ever result in a World Fencing Champs in individual events (we had a 4th place finish in team event last year)

who is this guy from Israel :yikes:

 

actually he is Ukranian (he competed for his native Country in the youth ranks)...

 

he was one of the best juniors in the World between 2013 and 2015, so he was quite expected to become a strong contender...

 

but then he switched to Israeli's team and had quite a difficult transition to the senior level...

 

now it looks that he's started to improve again...and that's not good news for his opponents...

p.s. I wrote too quick that I considered Szilagyi unbeatable...Kamil Ibragimov instead did think something different and upset the great Hungarian...:yikes:

 

and Hartung is out, too...

 

wow! OK, it's a post-Olympic World tournament, but how many surpring result we're seeing today! :lol:

oh, yeah...I just forgot that we're risking a "bad draw" in the semis...

I guess it would be a real shame if we have an undisputed semifinal bout on the first day of the worlds because of those stupid political issues...

Poland: Russia in women;s foil 2:0. Maybe it will be 3:0 now :d Deriglazova is not good today at all.

by the way, graphics and video are totally out of sync...red and green lights appear well before the action is concluded on the screen...:yikes::facepalm::wall:

 

p.s. Boubakri queen of dirty play, as usual...:facepalm:

but it seems that Volpi after a very bad start has just woken up (maybe I'm speaking too soon)...
