Our new national sport is...

fencing. successor of Cross County skiing.

today won our fencing ladies team silver medals in World Cup. In final they lost to Russ****ia. It was our second medal from this world cup after Erika Kirpu won bronze medal.

Total, we have won 3 gold medals from last World Cups (2 by Nikolai Novosjolov and one by Julia Beljajeva) and many other medals from European championships.

Probably they will take care for our medals in Rio

It's a completely irrelevant sport in world stage, I bet almost no Estonians know who the World Champions are in floret and espadron. Yet another opportunity to imagine that Estonian fringe athletes are famous on global stage.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? AndÖ.itís the football, thatís the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

the 2 other fencing styles: florett, espadron, epee are the Estonian names of these Foil, Sabre and Epee in English.

but it's like the first two doesn't even exist in Estonian sports media because we don't do these although all are equally represented in World Championships and Olympics
