Fencing FIE Cadet & Junior World Championships 2018

Recommended Posts

unbelievable success by the Italian guys...:yikes::bowdown:

they've been able to beat a real super-team from Russia with people like Lokhanov, Pozdniakov and Kostenko, all of them multiple European and World title holders and already well established specialists among the senior ranks...

that's what we can call "a big upset"...

 

and the US girls almost did the same against the mighty Russians...they've just been unlucky with the final hit...

 

so, the Sabre events are also over...and in this discipline it's been mostly a Russian fest...in fact, they won 3 out of 6 titles, meanwhile Italy, Hungary and Romania won 1 Gold medal each...

 

therefore, after 2 weapons, Russia are leading the medal table with 4 Gold medals followed by Italy with 3 and Hungary with 2, while France, Hong Kong and Romania have 1 Gold medal each.

USA, POL, KOR, KAZ, JPN, MEX, ESP, GER are also in the medal table, but with no Gold...

 

starting tomorrow, it's time for the Foil competitions, which will lead this year's Worlds to an end...

First on the stage, the women and men's Junior Individual events...

talking about inexperience and lack of personality...that's Martina Favaretto...she literally threw away the World Junior title (being herself still a Cadet) because of that...:facepalm::wall:

in addition to the first 10 athletes per weapon (max 1 per NOC), 3 more men and 3 more women will get their spot at the YOG 2018 based on a very controversial (and subject to different interpretations) ranking...

 

those places should go to:

 

Veronika Bieleszova (CZE), Europe (Women's Epee)

Katina Proestakis (CHI), Pan-America (Women's Foil)

Chen Yi-Tung (TPE), Asia (Men's Foil)

Christiaan Bester (RSA), Africa (Men's Epee)

 

meanwhile I have absolutely no idea of how to spread the 2 spots reserved to Oceania: according to the World Champs and the Asia & Oceania Continental Champs results, Australia should get a place in the Women's Foil (their best event in Verona) and the same should happen to New Zealand, who only participated in that competition...

but this would break the "max 1 per weapon" rule...

so, there's a chance that AUS would be forced to select someone in the men or women's Sabre, meanwhile, if they want to give the second spot to Oceania at any cost, they can only let them participate in the only event they entered in both the World and Continental Champs (which is the Women's Foil)...

 

therefore, I guess it's better to wait for some official comunication before taking this list for granted...
