I had a lot of interest in the past, but every season it is getting worse, bad coverage, and with that paying terms they hit rock bottom.   First you have to gain popularity, then you can pl

probably they would take the test format after the traditional 36-player final with the best 12 of that event...

So, let's sum up:

1. Yes, I am happy it's back.

2. No, I am not happy, that it's back without me in Budapest now.

3. No, I am not happy with the UIPM TV being hidden behind the paywall. It may work with FEI or ITU with big sports popularity. IJF is doing all on Youtube, still developing their coverage. UIPM goes down and down since London 2012.

4. Yes, I am sad with the Polish results on Wednesday - that was so close, but unless you're an outstanding runner (none of our girls is), you can't just do the fencing with 50%-50% on victories-defeats.

5. And I don't really know what to think about Oktawia's come back. With such a poor run (the same she showed two weeks ago in Drzonków), maybe it would be better not to. But she made the decision just six days after she told me she concentrates on CISM competitions, so...

The paywall for such an unpopular sport is ridiculous. This World Cup event in Budapest isn't even on any Hungarian TV channels, and we are one of the few nations who actually care about this sport.
