    Excerpts from the FIS web site

    Everybody's attention is focused on the team competition this Sunday. It could finalize the qualification of the Italian MF team for London since after their victory in Paris they placed a heavy bet on the Olympic pass. With a good result in La Coruña the Italian team could celebrate the mathematical certainty of their Olympic qualification.

    Andrea Cassarà (#1), Giorgio Avola (#2), Valerio Aspromonte (#3), and Andrea Baldini (#4), together with Luca Simoncelli (#16) will fence directly in the tableau of 64 the second day.


    USA will have two fencers, Race Imboden (#8) and Alexander Massialas (#12) starting in the tableau of 64 the second day.


    Excerpts from FFE web site

    The French MF feel better since they are currently #3 in AOR for the qualifying race. However this is absolutely not the time to let go but to confirm this 3rd spot and begin to make an impression as a team. Victory is within reach of this very experienced team composed, as for the CIP, by Victor Sintès (#5), Erwan le Pechoux (#14), Marcel Marcilloux (#24), and Brice Guyart (#46). Sintès and le Pechoux will start in the tableau of 64 the second day.

    Gotta wonder if FRA will keep Guyart for the team event...

    I'm picking Avola to win the individual event. Imboden and Sintes to medal.

    Sorry, that's all I could find. The official web site for this event has not posted any updates (since last year :rolleyes: )

    The USFA web site has even less info... but it has a nice Q&A with Race Imboden :)

    There is now more info on the offical web page. Results up to 65 are posted as is the DE table of 128. Best as I can tell Meinhardt, Willette and Parkins got byes to 64. Dudley and Woo made it into 64. The rest didnot make it out of the 64s. I believe it ended as:
    Miles 68
    Goldstein 85
    Chang 96
    Getz 133
    Elkassas 137

    DE for 64 still not posted but you can get an idea by looking at the ranking out of the pools.

    Must suck to be an Italian MF fencer other than Baldini, Cassara, Avola, Aspromonte... you could be 5th in the world and you still wouldn't go to the Olympics! Unless you spiked someone's water I guess. But that would never happen.

    I can see the final ranking on the FIE site, but is the tableau up anywhere yet?

    Surprised to see Le Pechoux in 2nd, and there are some other surprises there too. Willette is a good fencer but I don't know if he's done that well in a senior event before. Davis in the top 16 too. Yep, definitely gotta see that tableau

    Baldini loses to Hatoel again in the 64. Ouch. Le pechoux is on an upward tangent since last season. Kruse is not. To see the tableau just hit table on the fie site.

    If this continues, Baldini may not qualify for indiv Olympics again?

    In the battle of Russia, chereminisov takes out kovanski 15-0. How can he not score one single point against a guy he trains with all the time? I bet even DavidX could get one point on chereminisov. Ok, maybe not... I forgot Craig beat him 5-0 in 20 seconds.

    The fie.org site has no mention of this event.

    Ok, apparently fie.ch has the results. I thought they were going to move everything to fie.org.

    I agree... and results which would make normal people happy are never good enough!

    Excerpts from the FIS web site


    This success in La Coruna is the 21st in Andrea Cassarà career. With this victory Cassarà matches the winning record in world cups held by Salvatore Sanzo.

    "Now the goal is to go past him," says the 2011 world champion. "But I'm in no hurry because I've plenty of time and there are many competitions ahead. For now I enjoy the pleasure of these victories. I know that the objective is in London in July, but I don't like to lose!"

    In the final he beat le Pechoux (FRA) 15-10. In the semifinal he beat his team mate Valerio Aspromonte 15-11 who finished third.

    "I was expecting something more," said Stefano Cerioni, Italian Foil CT. "This evaluation does not include Andrea Cassarà and Valerio Aspromonte who had an excellent performance. Both expressed their best fencing. Aspromonte after a tense beginning could free himself and win also difficult bouts all the way to the end. Andrea Baldini and Giorgio Avola on the other hand cannot loosen up and get over the tension. I wish that in the next competitions they too can return to express the great technical potential they have."

    Tomorrow in the team event a good result will give the mathematical assurance of the London qualification. The team will be Andrea Cassarà, Andrea Baldini, Valerio Aspromonte, and Giorgio Avola. Italy's first match will be against the winner between Brazil and Iran.



    From the FFE web site


    MF in La Coruna: a beautiful 2nd place for Erwann le Pechoux


    Erwann le Pechoux bows to Andrea Cassarà 10-15.

    The big right-handed Italian dominates the beginnings of this season and not only because of his size (6' 4") but also with his talent. After his win at CIP he nails his second consecutive victory in La Coruna in the world cup circuit.

    In the final, towered by Cassarà, 8.7" shorter to be exact, Erwann le Pechoux did well! In their last bout together at the Shanghai GP in May 2011, it was the French who won 15-13.

    Erwann will have possibly the chance to test few secret moves on the Italian tomorrow in the team event. To reach the final where Italy should get without too much difficulty, France should beat the winner between Spain - Egypt, and then Russia or Ukraine.

    Currently in third place, France MF team would be qualified for London. In fact it is the only French team with a qualification, at this point, for London.

    The team put together by maître Marcelin (Sintès, le Pechoux, Guyart, and Marcilloux) must keep this third spot come what may.

    So how does Willette's 12th place finish plus Miles' below 64th place finish affect the rankings at the top end of MF for the fourth slot in the MFT event? With Massialas clearly now in the lead and Imboden in second, Meinhardt's top-32 finish also helps him some to secure a spot on the team. The question is who's going to be the fourth man.

    He could be right-handed for everything, but just fences left-handed. You know, just to give his opponents a break.
