Episode 31: A Great End to the Season

We wrap up the regular season with the action from Madrid* men's sabre World Cup in Madrid, Grand Prix epee from Cali in Colombia and the women's sabre World Cup in Tunis. Gav gets all excited about a new Korean epeeist, another fencer gets added to Sean's list of favourite female sabreurs (if you're not on the list, are you even a female sabreur?). Gav confesses he has been watching sabre this season** but has waited until the end of the season to announce this fact. We delve into the murky world of Russian sports politics and we will see democracy restored with a new Twitter poll for Coolest Fencer on the Planet. We have a bunch of great interviews almost ready for release

*(after Sean does his homework - ed.)
**(Gav's an epeeist, it was a tough admission for him)
