Behold the magnificence: Szilagyi (HUN) v Kovalev (RUS)

It doesn’t get any better than this.

We’ve got Aron Szilagyi and Nikolai Kovalev, two of the coolest sabreurs in the world, at the semifinal of the 2013 World Championships. It’s  a close and evenly-matched bout with some very solid high-level fencing.

Then Szilagyi pulls off what many have called the best sabre hit of all time.
