Four of our male and four female fencers made it to the main draw of the Tunisian Grand Prix, whose fights took place on Sunday.
And although there were sad moments during the day, in general we have more reasons to be happy, as three Hungarian fencers also made it to the eights table, or as they say in sports, the final in Tunisia.
Ladies, under Priority (and Anyway), let’s talk about our big returns, Martin About Annawho fought brilliantly during the day – the fact that he lost the quarter-finals may have been due to the fact that he was tired, but this is perhaps not so surprising after a year and a half absence.
Just as it was not the result of his teacher, Gabor Gardos, who whispered to us a few days ago: “I expect Banca in the eight in Tunisia, if he misses a year and a half, if not.”
Coach Gardus was also able to lobby for another Sunday student, W.J Andras Szatmary He participated in another round, where he made it to the top four, losing to Georgian Szandro Bazadze, thus winning the bronze medal.
We only have one comment about the individual world champion: We’ve expected him to medal in the individual competitions for a long time.
Third great performance of the day Csanád Gemesi He performed, once again proving that he never gives up: he won 15:14 against his current opponent in the first and second rounds, and then, in the round of 16, he won with one stroke in his favor – against Luca Coratoli, who is seeded in first place. Then he had the same method from another Italian classic, Luigi Samele, to get into the top four, so the classic from Gödöllő finished seventh.
