Winter is going, Spring is coming...and traditionally, this means that's time for the Youth Zone Championships...

 

 

so far, the African Cadets & Junior Champs are the only to be already done and dusted...

 

here's a quick recap...

 

2022 Cadets & Juniors African Championships (:NGR Lagos)


Cadets Results

 

Women's Individual Epee: :EGY Maya Shalash
Women's Individual Foil: :EGY Jana Ehab

Final Medal Table


:EGY EGY  16 - 10 - 15
:ALG ALG  2 - 7 - 9
:LBA LBA  0 - 1 - 1
:SEN SEN  0 - 0 - 3
:NGR NGR  0 - 0 - 2

 

 

as usual, it's been a one-side show, with Egypt winning basically every event (only Algeria could stop them from an unbelievable clean sweep by taking a couple of individual gold medals home)...

 

to be noticed, except for the Bronze medal won by Lybia, all of the individual honors went to Egypt and/or Algeria...the silver won by Lybia and all the bronze medals won by Senegal and Nigeria came from the team events...and just because there was a free spot to be taken on third step of the podium...

Cadets only Medal Table

:HKG HKG 4 - 1 - 4
:KAZ KAZ 2 - 0 - 4
:IND IND 0 - 1 - 4
:IRI IRI 0 - 1 - 1

:AUS AUS 0 - 0 - 1
:MAS MAS 0 - 0 - 1
:MGL MGL 0 - 0 - 1
:QAT QAT 0 - 0 - 1

 

 

as expected, the Host Nation dominated the side, taking advantage also by the absence of the 3 continental powerhouses, CHN, KOR and JPN...

very good outcome also for Hong Kong...

and despite the starting field being easier than usual, it's nice to see a good number of different countries (some of them not really known for their fencing tradition) being capable of winning at least a medal...

more to come, as the European Champs are also underway...

I encountered an article about a young Dutch fencer recently, I wonder if she can play a role of significance here. Ava Emanuel if I remember correctly, should be in the junior class I think.

Oh yes, the elephant in the room no Mexican sports writer knows and plainly ignores.

 

Since Paola Pliego’s shameful false doping 6 years ago, masterminded, by the Mexican federation’s president himself, she and every other fencer from the state of Queretaro have been recruited by Usmanov himself to compete for Uzbekistan, as said state’s federation was expelled from the national one.

Yes, Ava Emanuel is one of the 3 Dutch girls that competed in the women's Junior Foil...

 

Elise Butin Bik was the best among them, reaching the knockout stage, where she lost in the round of 64 against the Russian Anastasia Beznosikova with the score of 15-3...at the end of the day, she ended up in 51st place...

 

Valerie Buijse and Ava Emanuel, instead, were eliminated already after the pool stage and ended up in 73rd and 75th plce, respectively...

 

Tomorrow they will enter the team tournament, too...in the round of 32 they will face Sweden (on paper it's not an impossible matchup)...

in case they beat the Swedes, no.1 seed Russia are awaiting in the round of 16...
