Day six

It's been a big day. Let’s start with the epic first round win by the men’s epee team.

Men’s Epee Teams

Australia strode into the venue with eyes blazing, prepped to destroy all in their path. Ranked 8th at the outset with a bye into the T16, Australia faced Iran (9th) in the opening round. All four team members - Lachlan Crook, Alexander English, Isaac Hayes and Kristian Radford - contributed to a point-for-point effort, with Kristian Radford coming on to anchor with the score at AUS 38 - IRI 40. On the back of his gold-medal performance at AFC#2 last week and with his mum watching nervously from the sidelines, Kristian showed great patience and strategic nouse to level the score at 42 points all and then run the clock down. With another 60 seconds to fence and the light falling in Australia's favour, Kristian played classic cat-and-mouse then finished with a text book attack to secure victory 43-42. The win put Australia into the top eight and secured play-off matches against top-ranked Korea (lost 45-37 in a fantastic team effort that impressed all onlookers), Uzbekistan (lost 45-31) and Vietnam (lost 45-41). Australia finished in 8th position overall.

Women's Foil Teams

The women's foil team (8th) of Georgina Barratt, Freya Clarke, Violet Hull and Mayuri Muralidharan came close to victory in their first round match against Vietnam (9th) but lost in the dying minutes 45-44. They rallied in subsequent matches, defeating Iran 45-35 and Thailand 45-29 to finish in 9th place.
