For the first time in history, an Uzbek athlete became the world champion in fencing

The second day of the Junior and Youth Fencing World Championships, which is taking place in the UAE, has become a historic date for our sport. Our saber fencer Zukhriddin Kadyrov won it, becoming the first fencer in the history of Uzbekistan to win the world title.

In the junior category, our representative, who competed in saber, defeated the representatives of Canada, Egypt, Hungary, the USA, and in the final - Germany. In the decisive fight, Kadyrov outplayed Colin Hathcock with a score of 15:13.

Today, during the competition, Samira Shokirova and Musa Aitmurodov reached the quarterfinals. Unfortunately, they were a little unlucky on the threshold of the stage where they will play for the bronze medal.
