All the wild speculation (and techinical issues) pre Worlds

After a technical hitch (no blame attached) which means this episode is quite a bit shorter than originally planned, Sean, Gav and Kate make their predictions for the upcoming World Championships in Budapest. Kate will be there competing, while Sean and Gav will be generally loafing around.

Hello From Torun! (part 1)

Sean and Gav are in Torun in Poland for the World Cadet and Junior Championships. In this first part we discuss the action from the first five days covering all the sabre events and the foil cadet and junior individuals. Italy and Eastern Europe dominate in sabre, Liza Pusztai redeems herself, Russia rule the roost in men’s foil and Lauren Scruggs does the double. Also, Torun is beautiful with a golden donkey, the venue’s immense, Gav is obsessed by lighting and sean gets a shiny new toy from Leon Paul.

A fight with plenty of talking points (Scruggs v Pustilnik, cadet women’s foil L16) from 1hr 45 min 11 seconds. It’s a cracker:

TONS of action this episode.

Let’s start off with a bit of contrition. We missed Barcelona Women’s Epee last episode. it’s so busy at this time of the year that it feels easy to miss something. We feel bad, especially Gav who does watch Womens Epee.

We had a discussion on the role of commentary. Gav admits that he can’t watch fencing without sound and Sean observes that fencing without audio feels a bit amateurish? What do you think? Interested in your views on that one.
