bad news for Italy...Giorgio Avola injured himself in the warm-up before the men's team foil final, so he won't be available in the last act of the world champs against the USA...:cry::facepalm:

the problem was not about his replacement...but Avola's injury could have given Italy a lot of troubles in case of another injury and/or someone not throwing good enough, we were without a reserve guy in this final (but luckily we didn't need one)...

Fencing FIE World Championships 2018

 

Final Medal Table

 

ITA, 4 / 2 / 1
KOR, 2 / 2 / 3
USA, 2 / 2 / 2
FRA, 2 / 1 / 1
RUS, 1 / 2 / 4
SUI, 1 / 0 / 1
GBR, 0 / 1 / 0
ROU, 0 / 1 / 0
VEN, 0 / 1 / 0
UKR, 0 / 0 / 2
HUN, 0 / 0 / 1
ESP, 0 / 0 / 1
CHN, 0 / 0 / 1
TUN, 0 / 0 / 1

 

Italy win the medal table once again, 14 different Nations get at least a medal (6 at least 1 Gold) and 4 different Continents have made the podium at least once (and the top 3 Nations come from 3 different Continents)...

so, don't tell me that Fencing isn't a global sport...
