Mona Shaito, Amgad Badawi & Zain Shaito - Wakayama - Japan - april 2012

I’m very proud to be the Lebanese National coach at the Asian Fencing championship at Wakayama, Japan to coach the best group of fencers willing to earn the best results ever. I’m very proud to say that all the countries in Asia start realize that the Lebanese fencers came to Japan to compete and win not just as a numbers.

Mona Shaito Foil fenced as an Olympian, in her pool fenced against Nam (Korean Fencer and one of the best Foil Fencers in the world) at the round of 32 Mona defeated Vietnamese fencer 15-6 , at the round of 16 Mona fenced a Japanese fencer , Mona scored 2 nice touches at the defect area at the Japanese target to lose in overtime 7-6, Mona and myself droved the Italian coach who coach the Japanese foil team crazy (I felt sorry for the Referee to deal with me and the Japanese coach).

Dominique Tannous Epee is 15 years old but at her pool she fenced unexpected performance with all the fencers, she fenced the Chinese #1 in the world and she scored one tough with high blade action, Dominique ended her pool with 3 Victories to be by the round of 64 and move to the round of 32 to Fence very high experienced fencers to do her best but Dominique still 15 years old and she in her way to be the best epee fencer . Dominique earned her firs 6 international senior points.

Alessandro Michon Epee had a very strong pool with the top 3 epee fencers in Asia, Alessandro Fenced his best in pool to finish seeding 45 but he was unbelievable fencers at the round of 64 to defeat #21 seeding with 15-3 score and he continue to surprise us with his performance at the round of 32 to defeat # 13 seeding 15-10 to move to the round of 16 to fence against #4 seeding, Alessandro continued his high performance but again the experience made different in fencing.

Zain Shaito Foil proved to every fencers at the event that he is the best to qualify to the Olympic when he defeated every fencers in his pool including the Korean #11 in the world, at round of 32 zain win his bout 15-6 then he fenced a fencers from Japan, Zain drive the Japanese coach crazy again, Zain I’mso proud of your performance proud to coach you.

Andy Osman Foil has a very very strong poll to finish #30 seeding then he fence very strong at the round of 64 but he had a bad luck.

Alexandra Tannous Saber fenced very strong with very high performance at the Olympic qualifier to reach the round of 8, Alexandra will continue her strong performance tomorrow at the Asian championship but I have to leave tomorrow so Alex will not have the crazy Lebanese coach running everywhere, scream to his fencers to fight for each tough and giving the referee hard time.

I’m so proud to coach the Lebanese fencers and be a part of that team
