Aya Medany (EGY) has won the fencing event in the Women’s final with 26 victories and 9 defeats. Medany just scraped past Freyja Prentice (GBR) and local favorite Sabrina Crognale (ITA) by one bout in a fantastic session of fencing here in Sassari.
World #2 Donata Rimsaite (RUS) had a solid day, finishing only 5 shots off the pace with World #1 Lena Schoneborn (GER) finishing strongly, but still finished down the leaders board in 13 position 7 victories less than Medany.
World #4 and one of the pre events favorites Leila Gyenesei (HUN) is having a day that she would rather forget only scoring 13 victories which has her right down in 27th position with World #5 Yane marques not in much better shape in 24th position in an event that she is strongest in.
Former World #1 Laura Asaduskaite had a slow return back to competition with 17 victories back in 17th position, however fencing is one of her weakest disiplines.
