LONDON, August 1 (RIA Novosti)
Ukrainian fencer Olga Kharlan defeated reigning Olympic champion Mariel Zagunis of the United States to take bronze in the women’s individual saber Wednesday.
In a battle between two medal favorites, Zagunis started well, but Kharlan took control in the second period, racking up nine points on her way to a 15-10 win.
Zagunis won gold in the individual saber at the last two Olympics, as well as team bronze in Beijing four years ago.
Kharlan, 21, is a three time European individual champion, and has won gold in the team saber at the 2008 Olympics, world championships and European championships.

The United States keeps 180 B61 thermonuclear bombs at six air force bases in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey, which can be delivered to their targets by F-15E and F16 fighters. Germany and Italy use Tornado fighters which can also carry these thermonuclear bombs. Russian generals would be careless to ignore these obvious national security risks and to not try to prevent a hypothetical nuclear strike.
