Episode 4 part 2: Results and Beautiful Fencing

We have a look through the results:

Sean resists the urge to rant about a lack of streaming at an event while Gav doubles-down on saying something daft. There's been some surprise results recently and this presents the podcasters with a challenge when they choose their coolest fencer, who will they pick?

Fencing has been picked up by the official online Olympic Channel! And as part of the deal these guys have produced some "interesting" promo videos:

Race Imboden & Serge Golubitsky go a bit "9 1/2 weeks"
LeFort "finishes" Simon

Sean poses the question: what is beautiful fencing?

We don't think we will be able to squeeze another in till the new year so in the meantime:
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
