Posted by Lambviccmore from same (General)
 Quick update from William Bishop who is at the FIE camp in Moscow leading up to World Championships..

The camp is being held at the CSKA training facilities in Moscow, where apparently most of their military athletes train. This explains all the people in uniform and the rows of bronze heads along the pathways.

The camp has about 60 fencers attending, most of them in epee, from all around the world. There are a lot of African, Central Asian and Central/South American fencers here, which means plenty of different styles to train against.

We're training in two blocks of two hours a day, plus warm up time, so there are a lot of bouts every day. Normally split into mens and womens groups so that the coaches can give lessons a bit more easily and the pool sheet doesn't have to be too long.

Would be interesting to fence some of the women's epeeists though, the Eastern Europeans seem like they're pretty strong on the blade.

Food is...........interesting.  A  zuccini, cabbage and egplant dish yesterday.
