Fencing Qualification for Summer Olympic Games 2016

Recommended Posts

so the situation is that Hatuel went to a court that denied that request, now she is appealing and protesting it, she really wants to go, it's her last shot since she was retired already, and came back in order to try to make the team through the zonal event. Btw she beat Valentina Vezzali in Beijing.....

A couple of Australian sailors already went to CAS to appeal against the national standards, but that didn't work out for them since CAS decided against them, so I doubt Hatuel will have any different result (although maybe a national thing thinks otherwise...if they select her, I guess they'd have to select a whole ton of other athletes in other sports as well).

Another change in the list...

 

According to this article (in spanish), :DOM Felix de Lara earned a black card in the Pan American Championships last months earning a 2 month suspension; this means :PAN Eileen Grench will take her place in Rio.

What do you have to do to earn a black card?

A second instance of a Group 3 offence, and all Group 4 offences including deliberate brutality, refusal to fence, refusal to salute, and refusal to shake hands can be punished with a black card.

Those last two seem pretty harsh..I mean, refusal to shake hands being directly compared with deliberate brutality? :p

Ok, so she is like the stupidest athlete ever.

:lol:

 

Well of course I don't know what she did exactly, but it indeed doesn't seem like you get a black card for telltale signs of intelligence :p
