Any Danes here?

Post by higgins » 16 May 2017, 16:01

Ugh, I just realized I should have brought it up a while back already, so that any potential people could have made plans, but I'll be at Burg Spøttrup next Thursday, fighting Polearm 1vs1.

Image

I got a hand injury during the qualification as my gauntlet broke when my opponent was sniping at my fingers with a massive halberd. The hand is capable of using a smartphone already, but ... it'll get better hopefully? :|

Thanks! I'll need it.

Only two fighters get to go forward from the eliminations and one of them will almost certainly be Jose, who's been consistently a polarm finalist for years.

Definitely looking forward to facing him! :twisted:

Thanks! Got my helm dented by and American this time around as well. That better not become a tradition!

Also the whole event was covered by Danish national television. Not sure how much of it can be deciphered, but I'm mostly pasting it here so I don't lose the link myself :D

If I can convince my wife to watch it with me, she can translate in parallel... Is there a glimpse of you fighting somewhere?

I'm on the polearm quarter finals thumbnail, so, that's a safe bet: https://www.twitch.tv/usaknights/videos/all

My Spanish fight should also be there somewhere, but I'm still catching up with the footage myself. Both my opponents that I should have footage with were really tall and fought defensively, so, I had real trouble chasing them down so that they just wouldn't snipe me at distance.

The American was ambidextrous and chose to fight lefty to confuse people. Being that he won the silver, it definitely worked. Jose (the Spanish guy I fought) won the bronze.
