    Wow. That's really awsome. Nicely done.


    EDIT: Does anyone know what their path was?

    I was there for the draw only, Gago Demirchian was there as team coach. We won the tirage so we were seeded 5th and fenced Canada first. After Canada, I think it was the Ukraine (I am pulling the tableau from my memory of glancing at it). After upsetting the Ukraine, we would have fenced France (loss) and Poland (loss). I know this is not much detail, and I certainly wish that I had been there!!

    Japan.

    Japan upset Russia, and we beat Japan.

    Then lost to France, and Poland.

    Canada's team on the day was Tikhomirov, Bakos, Bajgoric and St-Hillaire. I believe in the match vs USA Tigran was the one backing up. If I'm not mistakenn, he said that Igor was the one to make a couple of mistakes in the last bout, which cost Canada the match. If I'm wrong - my apologies to Igor. He's a true inspiration to us all.

    I saw Igor fencing against Fabrice Jeannet in the Paris world cup this year. He definitely gave him a run for his money and actually came pretty close to winning the bout.

    I also fenced him a couple of times in NACs (only pool bouts, unfortunately) and I must say he definitely knows his stuff. It's always a pleasure to watch him or fence him.
    • Epee is the Louis Vuitton bag of fencing: only the best can get it, and the rest of the masses must content themselves with cheap knockoffs (sabre, foil)
    • To not recognize the power of the French grip is to be in denial

    Yeah, he's an awesome guy. He had just opened up his own separate club in Toronto and runs an online equipment retail business too.

    Just a plug for Ben, who, not only is so young, but who has really only been on the intl senior circuit for a short time. I believe he made something like half or more of the team points in the loss to France in Bogota. Watch this spot: Ben's a 2008 hopeful. He has mutiple speeds, super fast attacks, and attitude that works for him (or he's harnessed it...).

    Let's also acknowledge K. Udvarhelyi's work - a pro epee coach who knows intl epee, and develops a powerful two way game in his fencers.
