Hostile takeover: Montano (ITA) v Gu (KOR)

Friday fencing flamewar time! It’s Montano v Gu in the round of 32 at the 2014 Budapest Grand Prix. It’s a fascinating battle of age and guile versus youth and athleticism, and Montano has his young opponent pretty thoroughly outfoxed. There’s three or four brutally difficult referee calls in the match of which, I think, this one takes the cake:

The  full match is here:

This work is made possible by the research work done by the staff and students at the Sydney Sabre Centre, so if you like this I would really appreciate you leaving a review on Facebook and Google – 5 stars would be great but even better if you tell us why!
 
We read every single review and are always looking to improve how we do things because ultimately Sydney Sabre is all about  sharing this great sport and making it accessible to everyone. I know that this sport is a big part of who I am today, and wish this place was around when I was growing up.
 
If that isn’t enough motivation for you, here’s another reason: we will give you a stackable 5% discount off on anything we sell (services and stuff) for each review that you leave for us, for one transaction. You can spend it on yourself or use it to subsidise a friend (or a whole bunch of friends, if you want to bring along a horde).
 
Thanks in advance.

One thought on “Hostile takeover: Montano (ITA) v Gu (KOR)”

  1. Looks like a horrible call at full speed (and from this angle), but look at the slow-mo about 8:10 in the video. Looks like Gu pulls his hand right back as he steps forward to take it up to me.
