    It was a loss to Poland in the 8 (for those who don't wish to FIE the results), then a win over Hong Kong, and finally a nice victory over the #1 seeded Ukrainians at the end.

    The Ukrainian squad stumbled in the first round against the Italians, who frequently seem ready to rumble in the early rounds, before the rest of the field fully wakes up.

    Really? Fencers should be careful.

    I wonder if it has resulted in anyone testing positive...you know, just like eating a poppyseed bagel.

    That scenario sounds like "3 Strikes and You're Out!" territory..with a mandatory life sentence directing Y-10 Novice WF meets in unairconditioned gymnasiums.
