The fourth day of competition kicked off the sabre events with Junior Men’s and Women’s individual sabre.
Representing both Canada and BC in the Junior Men’s Epee event was Hunter Moricz of North Vancouver. He started the event in 58th seed, and went 4-2 in the preliminary pool round. One of the two bouts he lost was 5-4 against Ivan Mandov (BUL), while the other was unfortunately 5-0 for Frederico De Robbio (CRO). After making out through pooles, Hunter was seeded just above his initial rank in 55th place. His bout in the round of 128 was against Mazen Elaraby (EGY), who he lost to 10-15. As a result, Hunter ended up coming 74th in his first event of the competition. However, Hunter will have one more chance at victory on day 6 in the Junior Men’s Epee Team event. Well done Hunter, and good luck in team!
On Day 7 we will see our second men’s sabre fencer up on the piste, as Alex Sun competes in the Cadet Men’s Sabre individual category. Good luck tomorrow, Alex!
