Episode 18: World Championships Leipzig 2017 Day 2. Men’s Epee & Women’s Sabre

Day two of Sean and Gav’s jaunt to Germany for the World Championships. And we're both happy. Gav gets to watch epee all day while Sean gets his first taste of live world class women’s sabre since his conversion.

The Leipzig Arena remains hot and humid and a late night of editing episode 17 means both Sean and Gav are struggling a bit. Thankfully the quality of fencing was enough to lift us from our stupor (although this had largely worn off by the time we recorded the episode).

We discuss a day of shocks in both weapons that ended with two worthy, high quality winners and Gav bemoans the fact that he has to head back to Edinburgh for the boring 9 to 5 job.

Thanks as always to Leon Paul for supporting the podcast and to our Patreon supporters who have made the Leipzig expedition possible.
