Venue: Cairo Stadium’s Indoor Halls Complex, Egypt

High standards and impeccable fair play will be on display when the world's best Epee-, foil- and sabre-swingers touch down in Egypt for the 2022 Fencing World Championships. 

The profile of fencing has been raised by a brilliant documentary called One For All, which chronicles Hungarian Aron Szilagyi's five-year battle to become a three-time Olympic champion.

It's unclear if Szilagyi will compete but watch out for Italy's men's epee team: Gabriele Cimini, Davide DiVeroli, Andrea Santarelli and Federico Vismara are in fine form after winning team gold at the recent European Fencing Championships in Turkey.
