Dana Strelinikov from Ma’alot in northern Israel won the Fencing World Cup for those under the age of 17 this week in Slovakia. Participants from 32 countries took part in the competition.I used to fence when I was in high school. At one point I was even the captain of the foil team. So I was curious to learn more about the competition. A Google search brought me here, which in turn brought me to rubaisport.com. And this is what I saw (click on the pic):
Stelinikov defeated representatives of the Czech Republic, Poland, Switzerland, and Hungary to take the gold. Two other participants from Israel came in the fifth and ninth places.
The web is a wonderful place, is it not?
Update: RubaiSport has a blog. I left the guy a comment. Let's see what happens.
