James Williams has started translating the XXL magazine article on the Ukrainian fencing team, but he has hit a snag.
Despite Eric Edew’s comments on fencing.net that he doesn’t possess the skills . James wants to assure everyone that his Russian is fully fluent thanks to several years of coursework, several trips to Moscow and many fencing lessons taken in Russian from his coach Yury and that translating it has not been the reason for the hold up.
So, what’s the issue you ask?
Can’t find a full length article. here’s what i got here:
(Article called: Golden Girls”
“The ability to handle the cold steel of a weapon is usually punished by law. These girls, however, instead of a sentence, received universal recognition of their worth as the whole world applauded them. The Ukrainian women’s national fencing team let XXL in on their little secret…”
i can’t find the body of that article anywhere, but if someone sends it to me I will finish translating it.
So there you go…if anyone can track down the article for us, James will finish the job of translating.
