title holders, the French sabreurs eliminated in the quarterfinals

After the foilists’ title on Saturday, the sabreurs stopped in the quarter-finals at the Euro fencing event on Sunday.

The French sabreurs, who were the title holders, fell on Sunday in the quarter-finals of the European fencing championships in Basel.

Sébastien Patrice and his partners were surprised by the Turks (45-38) who won with a red card inflicted on the French finisher.

The Saber Blues had started with a bang, leading 15-8, but a breather from Boladé Apithy during a relay (12-4) revived the Turks (19-20) and destabilized the French.
