With 20-year-old Itkin
replacing Miles Chamley-Watson in
the line-up, Meinhardt, who won silver in the individual competition, was used
as the reserve. Never headed after Imboden took a 5-4 lead in the first bout,
it was Itkin who extended the lead to 15-7 against Jun Heo, and then to 35-26 over Young Ki Son, to all but ensure Imboben and then Massialas could
close out the win.
USA tops medal tally at the Veteran Fencing World Championships in Cairo
Monday October 14, 2019
As the current generation of stars continued their build up to an Olympic season of international fencing, close to 700 veterans from 46 different federations competed at the 2019 Veteran Fencing World Championships in Cairo, Egypt, between October 5-11. USA topped the medal tally with six gold, followed by Great Britain and Italy with four

Earlier they had defeated Russia 45-42 in their semifinal match-up, Itkin playing a key role in bringing USA level at 33-33, before his teammates were able to ensure passage to the Gold medal match with Korea.
In their upset over Italy in the other semi, 45-37, it was Korea’s Kwanghyun Lee who was vital, achieving a TR of +10 over the highly-rated combination of Giorgio Avola, Alessio Foconi and Daniele Garozzo.
The team win puts USA in the
box seat for Olympic qualification, and increases their lead on the FIE’s
ranking table over France, Hong Kong and Italy, who sit fourth.
In the individual competition
the day before, France’s Julien Mertine,
whose world ranking has fluctuated well outside the world’s top 50, was the
beneficiary of a bottom-half of the draw that opened up after the shock exit of
world number two Race Imboden at the table of 64. He lost to world number 38 Daniel Dosa from Hungary (15-10), in
what has to be an early candidate for upset of the season.
Mertine then defeated
Imboden’s teammate Massialas (15-11) before taking care of his own highly
accomplished countryman, Erwann Le
Pechoux, 15-10 in the table of 16. This advanced him to the quarterfinal
against Germany’s Benjamin Kleinbrink,
which he won easily, 15-3. In his semifinal Mertine defeated celebrated Italian
opponent Andrea Cassara, 15-10.
Meanwhile, Meinhardt had to
defeat both of Italy’s most recently decorated fencers, current Olympic
champion Daniele Garozzo, 15-9, in
the quarterfinal, followed by 2018 World Champion and current number one, Alessio Foconi, 15-12, to reach the
gold medal match.
He dropped that, 15-9 to the Frenchman, but the Silver was only his second in individual competition, following up the one he won in Paris at the beginning of the year, when he lost to Foconi in the final, 12-15. On that day, Imboden had stood on the dais with him, along with another Italian, Giorgio Avola.
