Team GB; Anna Bentley, Natalia Sheppard and Sophie Troiano, beat Egypt 45-34 with fantastic backing from the audience but then had to face the dream team. After Anna scored the first hit Italy then took over and won 42-14 without breaking into a sweat.
GB then started to fence defensively which may have been a mistake as they lost to Poland 20-43 and then to Japan 21-30. We ended up 8th out of 9 overall.
Silver went to Russia, who were the winners in Beijing and Bronze went to Korea after beating France 45-32
