Also held yesterday was the women's foil competition, where once again the two best women's foilists in Australia turned out to be a New Zealander and a Frenchwoman. Hmmmm ... something isn't quite right there.
So, my day wasn't quite what I might have hoped for, but it wasn't really bad as such either - none of the little annoyances that often pop up at competitions came up (e.g. forgetting something, or equipment malfunction, or running out of fitness), and I fenced pretty well, I just lost to the person who was fencing best on the day.
Yesterday might end up being my last competition on Australian soil for a few years, it will be interesting to see what fencing in Scotland (and the UK) is like, and very interesting to have comps in many other countries a relatively short flight away.
And finally last night rwrylsin and I got to relax and play board games with a few friends who we don't see often enough (considering they're actually in the same city as us :-) ).
