Men's Foil WC Cuidad A Coruna - Andrew Kell 84th/96, Sandy Patterson 93rd/96 - in Adrew's words: Sandy and I have just come back from the competition in La Coruña, and had a great time. Unfortunately we both were eliminated in the poule round, but it was an exhilarating experience. I had a 5-1 victory in my poule but was bested in the rest. I had the opportunity for a second victory against Cherubino, a Spaniard from the national team, but he pipped me 5-4....particularly frustrating since I had been winning 3-0. You should have heard the Spanish coach screaming at him during the bout...it was all pretty exciting. The fencing in the DE of 64 was incredible, but unfortunately we had to leave before the semi-finals, so I'm not sure who won, but my money is on the young German Kleibrink who took apart the Olympic champion Guyart 15-3 in the 8. The other 3 fencers were Lei, Coutant, and the American, Dupree, who I had had in my poule.
Undeterred, Sandy and I have decided we would like to take advantage of being on this side of the world, and fence in the Coupe Ville de Venise on 10-11 Feb.
