This episode's big discussion is about the Junior & Cadet World Championships. This year they took place in Verona Italy. On the senior circuit our last big competition was the Seoul Grand Prix which had begun as we were finishing off our last episode.
Seoul Grand Prix:
You can see all of the Seoul Action over on the FIE Fencing Channel.
Mens and Women's Finals sessions: https://youtu.be/HEmWknrAqrA
It's one big stream but worth your time. Be amazed as Szilagyi makes everyone look like amateurs!
Junio & Cadet World Championships:
There's more footage than you can shake a foil at. We suggest heading over to the Fencing Vison youtube channel and looking through their playlists. The finals sessions are also on the FIE Fencing channel. A couple of highlights to whet you appetite.
JME SF: MIdelton (fra) v Nguefack (fra) https://youtu.be/Ik6MHLqCWBI
JWF: Ueno (jpn) vs Faveretto (ita). https://youtu.be/dIbAryOehxI
(Warning this one is a scorcher!)
In other news:
US Fencing has adopted the FIE mandated "soft covered chest protector". This has been coming for a while but it's interesting to see a major fencing nation adopt it so suddenly. Shout out to BetterFencer.com (great article on stretching). And a big up to welovefencing.com who also provide tournament write up.
And here's our big BIG QUESTION: How much does it cost to stream a video tournment? And what's the minimum standard you'll accept?
