    Beauty is not the goal of competitive sports, but high-level sports are a prime venue for the expression of human beauty. The relation is roughly that of courage to war.

    Men's Foil final was spectacular! Tomer was up 14-11 and dominant up to this point. Baldini couldn't get his attack going for the majority of the first period.
    Baldini tied it up at 14-14 just as the 2nd period expired.... Tomer made a great prise-de-fer attack to start the 3rd but it landed what looked like inches from the lame... After a few nice exchanges at either end of the strip, Tomer made a well-timed attack, but hesitated just for a millisecond... Baldini counter-attacked and almost misssed, but was clearly relieved when he saw that his point managed to stick to Tomer's lame after all.... Excellent match.

    The semis were rather mundane, as both of the Japanese fencers were dominated by their respective European opponents.
    Ota had another close call in what was a great bout with Jorgensen (DEN), who fenced incredibly well. The Japanese was down by 4 in the 3rd ended up overcoming in a matter of seconds, after switching a foil and re-focusing.
    The epee competition was great as well. A ton of exciting matches, several upsets... Would have been one more upset had the referee not made a mistake in an OT bout between Seth Kelsey and Christophe Lavoie (a tricky Canadian junior)...
    All in all, a much better turnout than most people anticipated given that it's a non-GP and in the first year of the quad.

    I thought Laura Flessel was done after '08? Apparently not.

    I didn't have a good angle on it but what I saw was a fairly clean touch by Christophe. Afterwards the ref said there was no touch because it was "after the halt" which he had not actually said, nor for which there was any good reason. I was just walking by and had my view obstructed by a few people so anyone who saw the action clearly could help me out by explaining what the halt was for.

    I didn't notice at the time, but one of the Americans who was watching said the ref also made a mistake in awarding Kelsey's final touch since he apparently hit on the second action after a fleche past by Christophe.
