Fencing: Borel loses his title of world champion


Big disappointment for Yannick Borel at the World Championships in Budapest (Hungary). The world No. 2, reigning world champion, lost (12-15) in the quarterfinals against the Italian Andrea Santarelli (No. 7), after a duel lost in the money-time . The Levallois shooter was the last tricolor survivor after the outings of Ronan Gustin (beaten by Borel), Alexandre Bardenet in 8th and that of Romain Cannone in the 2nd round.

This is a new disillusion for the men's sword after the recent European Championships. A month ago, in Düsseldorf (Germany), Yannick Borel (already better French) took the 10th place in individual. The team of France, Olympic champion in Rio in 2016, had taken a little glorious 11th place. A revenge is expected this Sunday for the French musketeers.
