US National Team Member Ambika Singh just sent me this update via email:
The Men’s foil Grand Prix in Shanghai started yesterday with 8 US men’s foilests and 4 made it to the next day of DE’s which is today. Gerek was in the top 16 so he did not fence pools. Fencing DE’s today are Gerek, Miles Chamley-Watson, Alex Massialas, and Andras Horanyi. Good luck to Men’s Saber! I will update you later today. Men’s foil fences team tommorow and women’s foil world cup starts in 2 days.
