Lanigan O'Keeffe Fires to Win Fencing
Sep 8th Sep, 12
Arthur Lanigan O’Keeffe (IRL) has coped with the pressure of being one of the favourites beautifully by winning the fencing with 25V & 10D. The Irishman was 2 victories ahead of Andrea Pucciariello (ITA) and Martin Bilko (CZE) who will be pleased of how they coped on the world biggest stage. The dangerous French pair of Valentin Prades and Valentin Belaud are a further victory back and the superstar of the field Ilya Sugarov (RUS) is still in contention finishing just 4 victories behind O’Keeffe. As usual defending champion Jamie Cooke (GBR) has left himself some work to do, finishing 27th, 11 victories behind the winner. However, this was exactly the same score he posted last year in the fencing before he won the championships, so don't count him out just yet.

Jul 6th Jul, 11
Despite being a break in the World Cup Series June has been a busy month. There were the 2 National Championships, being the Polish and German Opens, the 1st ever $100,000USD prize money Kremlin Cup and the NORCECA Championships. It was announced that Bulgaria would host the 2011 Biathle World Championships and we look forward to the 2011 World Cup Final. We get the feeling that the London 2012 Olympics are around the corner with the Modern Pentathlon London 2012 page being launched and the Modern Pentathlon Olympic Fencing Hall being opened.
