Our compatriots showed a brilliant result

Ukraine's women's foil fencing team has won its first-ever medal in a team event at the World Cup. Alina Poloziuk, Olha Sopit, Kateryna Budenko, and Daria Myroniuk won bronze medals at the final, 5th stage of the World Cup in Hong Kong.

To this day, the best result for our women's foil team in the team championship at the World Cup level was sixth place in February 2024 in Egypt.
