FROM JERRY SOUTH – 3:08 P.M. PST, 4/24/15

Jose continues his march to the podium with a 15-9 win over Dall’Ulmo from San Marino. He cinched the game with two long lags. His 10,000 hours of preparation has paid off. Tomorrow afternoon he faces Bianchi from Switzerland who eliminated Natale, the Austrian, who won the title 5 years ago.

Navina faced Lisa Luccarini a veteran member of the Italian national team who is undefeated in the tournament. Navina played with grit and heart but lost 15-4. Tomorrow she plays Laura Riso, the young Swiss woman we met in China last fall, for the Bronze.
