this is game you guys don:t have to judge with Geo politics or anything else. games are for loss and win and those games makes mutual friendship between countries,so far as my point there's no need of criticism and all you commenting guys or gals all i need to say you is grow up and see the other world too what they are doing just don:t hang only in japan and china

Looks like the Chinese guy is a tall lefty. Those guys usually have an advantage in foil. Ota impressed me because he's a short righty and he still medalled in the Olympics, so his technique must really be sharp.

Nearly a perfect photo for adidas....if his leg wasn't blocking the sign.

Won't be an interesting sport until they use real swords.
