Episode 30: A grab bag of Epee, Sabre and Foil

We talk about the Moscow Sabre Grand Prix - Queen Velikaya returns and we find out who scares Sean. Gav's been watching the SNCF Reseau men's epee from Paris. Oldies dominate the podium and Sean doesn't feel encouraged to watch the team event. And finally we look at the Shanghai Foil Grand Prix with mixed feelings of joy and inevitability. Gav's previously hitherto unknown obsession with Quavers* becomes apparent...

Our flirtation with democracy comes to an end as Sean imposes his coolest fencer on the planet**!

Episode 10: International Epee and Sabre, Sean sits down with Ziemek Wojciechowski

Welcome to Episode 10! Our first milestone, Gav thought we should throw a party but that somehow slipped off the agenda. Maybe next time though as we share our excellent news - we are now sponsored by Leon Paul UK!

So we bought some new kit (which we're getting used to) and booked flights to Leipzig to bring you all the action from the upcoming World Championships!

Episode 9: Long Beach GP, The Junior & Cadet World Champs

Episode 9: Long Beach GP, The Junior & Cadet World Champs

The only recent senior action happened in the Long Beach Foil Grand Prix. Our duo discuss the highlights. James Davis and Marcus Mepstead send in their thoughts following the tournament.

Video from the event can be found here: https://youtu.be/bXlzMDXh_QM

We look forward to the upcoming Cadet and Junior World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Gav hopes it isn't held in a car-park and fails his Bulgarian history exam. The podcasters throw the runes and divine who might be worth looking for at the event. We're really looking forward to this and will watch it to the bitter end.

The FIE have released a new Video magazine. Sean watched it, liked it and offers somethoughts.
