Which makes 18/18 for France and Russia.Russia will have a full squad without a doubt. We may join them, but it'll be close. Before the last GP, Anstett is the last Top 14 qualifier, and Rousset the last european one. :fingers:

I really hope that GB will win a gold medal in mens foil in Rio. We will have a small team (as expected), but at least we wont have any tourists. :d

I expect 1 medal and i would be very happy with 2 medals. I am sure that we will have at least one team in Tokyo (our mens sabre team should qualify), but this could also be the only positive thing to say about our future in fencing. Joppich, Heidemann and Golubytskyi all will retire before Tokyo, so we have to hope that talents like Ebert or Stahlberg will take their place. I expect a lot from France and USA in Rio, i think those nations will each win 2-3 gold medals.

After losing few times in quarterfinals (mostly 15-14) Abedini finally made it to the semifinal (and later to the final) in a Grand Prix (or World Cup) event and with this he made history to win Iran's first ever medal in this level of competition.

 

he also qualified himself and his teammate Pakdaman for Rio :d

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.
