Korea's HONG SEIN went home with a Silver medal in the Women's Foil Cadet individual event, while the Japanese women's Foil Team proved worthy also with a Silver medal finish. All other medalists finished with a Bronze, 4 for Korea, 2 for Japan and 1 for China.
The bronzes for Korea were made by KIM SIENUN in the women's Epee Junior individual event, PARK JIHEE in the women's Foil Junior individual event, LEE DOHUN in the Men's Saber Junior individual event, and the Women's Foil Team.
