Rublevska finished with 31 victories and 11 defeats (2 touch), which was 2 victories ahead of fellow Olympic qualifier Adrienn Toth (HUN) and 3 more than Tatsiana Yelizarova (BLR) and Evdokia Gretchichnikova (RUS).
The German pair of Janine Kohlmann and Ronja Doring only recorded 14 and 13 wins respectively, which leaves them rooted to the bottom of the ladder and they will now find it tough to make it into the top 18 positions to qualify for Friday’s final.
Sylvia Gawlikowska (POL) recorded the same amount of wins as Rublevska (31 victories and 11 defeats) to win group B ahead of Sabrina Crognale and Ekaterina Khuraskina who were both 2 victories behind.
2011 World Champion Victoria Tereshuk (UKR) has looked to have turned around her poor form which saw her not make this year’s World Championships final to finish in 4th position only 3 victories behind Gawlikowska which will surely ensure her qualification.
Tamara Vega (MEX) and Ginatre Venckauskaite (LTU) both struggled to get to grips with the high level of fencing on show today and are languishing at the bottom of the table. Pressure is not on them in the next 3 events to squeeze into that all important top 18.
