Fencing media

Ok, so for a very long time it was difficult to find videos of fencing online. normally, you'd have to rely on amateur footage of competitions. No longer is this the case! Now, FIE, the governing body of fencing has set up a Youtube page called FIEVideo and it is freaking awesome. IT has almost EVERY match in their major competitions perfectly set up in good quality. so i highly recommend you visit it!

This is a link to the recent WORLD Championships at the Grand Palais in Paris, France. This is the Men's Sabre final with a Korean!

ALSO if you want to be sure of who the referee gives the point to, look at who receives the "Raised palm". That is the official signal that a point was given. The lead the korean takes is amazing! 12-1 at one point.

The last point is amazing!
