Fencer Guchmazova offered to go to the front to her Ukrainian rival, who refused to shake her hand

Georgian fencer Maya Guchmazova advised Ukrainian Elena Krivitskaya to go to the front, who refused to shake her hand after a fight at the European Fencing Championship.

The tournament takes place in Switzerland. The match ended with Krivitskaya’s victory with a score of 15:9. After the fight, the Ukrainian left the scene, ignoring the handshake with her opponent, which greatly irritated Guchmazova, who expressed her displeasure using obscene language.

– Take a weapon and fight, defend your homeland. Do not travel to Switzerland at public expense to attend competitions and do not do fencing!

And if I had done that, I would have been disqualified,” Guchmazova said according to RT.

Guchmazova was born in Vladikavkaz and has represented Georgia since 2017. Krivitskaya is from the Yaroslavl region.

The International Fencing Federation (FIE) last year abolished the clause in its regulations requiring fencers to shake hands at the end of a match. This decision was made against the backdrop of Ukrainian Olga Kharlan’s refusal to shake hands with Russian Anna Smirnova after her fight at the World Championships.
