Guest post from the team at Hot Fencer Of The Day
World Championships. They came, they saw, many kicked ass and some took names. But now a bevvy of the worlds best sabreurs are headed home (and with pretty much mandatory interesting flight connections, they might get there next week). Some come away be-medalled, some beaming with pride, others bemoaning their luck (and possibly some bedazzled….hey, what happens at World Champs stays at World Champs). Crowns have been passed on to new recipients, and their time in the sun has just begun. All hail the glorious victors!
I for one welcome our new Sabreur Overlords, but they might have a fight on their hands securing the best rooms at the fancy World Champions Palace of Victorious Victory (this is a real place, I didn’t just make it up), since the only Wold Champ to defend her title, already has dibs on the 206sqm penthouse apartment with elevator, dining-room, living room, gym, kitchen and bakery overlooking a private garden, three bedrooms with dressing rooms, secluded balconies, and luxury bathroom ensuites (everyone else has to fight over the remaining high end three bedroom apartments that don’t come with bakeries or private gardens) And seriously, after watching her bouts, you don’t want to argue with this lady. Not at all.
