In an intense and exciting competition the El Geziry brothers, Omar and Amro of Egypt dominated the majority of the day, with Omar taking the lead from the fence through to the combined event. However, glory in front of a home crowd eluded the two brothers with Ondrej Polivka of Czech out performing the rest of field, having taken advantage when both brothers faulted in the shooting dropping places during the second set. Running hard in the final kilometre, Lithuanian duo Edvinas Krungolcas and Tadas Zemaitis took silver and bronze respectively. This caps an impressive weekend for Lithuania taking home a complete medal set in this World Cup after Laura Asadauskaite’s golden performance yesterday.
At the start of the day in the fencing it was Omar El Geziry who impressed with his finesse on the pistes to take the lead with 1024 points for 29 victories/9 defeats. Following close in equal second was Justinas Kinderis (LTU) and Pavel Sekretev (RUS) both with 13V/4D (952 points). Third position was shared by four athletes - David Svoboda (CZE), Denis Cherkovskis (LAT), Tadas Zemaitis (LTU) and Amro El Geziry (EGY) all on 904 points.
This was a tight group at the top, meaning that performances in swimming would start to separate the athletes.
Making the quick transition pool side it is home favourite and star of the pool Amro El Geziry (EGY) who did not disappoint. El Geziry completed the swim in an amazing 1:56.61 two body lengths ahead of Sung hyun Lee (KOR) and his brother Omar El Geziry (EGY). The crowd was ecstatic with the result especially learning that after two events the El Geziry brothers topped the leader board – Omar with 2355 points and Amro with 2308 points.
Rounding out the top 3 was Lithuanian Justinas Kinderis on 2220 points.
|Across to the Cairo Equestrian Centre, the men displayed their skills with three obtaining the perfect score of 1200 - Edvinas Krungolcas (LTU), Denis Cherkovskis (LAT) and Justinas Kinderis (LTU). Ondrej Polivka (CZE) the last rider in round 1 also had a great ride albeit the only injuries to his score a 16 point time penalty resulting in 1184 points. As the last two riders of the day, the anticipation of the El Geziry brothers built in the crowd. Amro was first on the course, suffering only one knock down (20 penalty points) for a score of 1180 points. Omar, the final rider for the day, incurred one obstacle penalty and experienced a little difficulty to remain within the time to have 44 penalty points deducted resulting in a total 1156. But even a few penalties did not stop the domination by the El Geziry brothers, except to bring them closer overall. After three events Omar still held the top spot with 3508 points, while Amro had 3488. Kinderis remained their nearest rival with 3420 points, while Italian Pierpaolo Petroni moved up into fourth position (3340 points).|
|The brothers started with only 5 seconds separating them in the combined.
Omar successful in his shots was out on the first 1km course increasing
his lead. Amro shortly followed with Petroni having had a fast shoot come
out in third ahead of Kinderis who staggered to fall back in fifth position.
On the course Omar kept his distance in the lead returning to the range
taking 4 shots (2 hit/2miss) before Amro who also returned with Petroni
on his shoulder. In a dramatic turn of events, with 5 fantastic shots Ondrej
Polivka was first out of the range, moving from his sixth starting position
Determined to keep his lead Polivka kept a solid pace, meanwhile Omar struggled with the shots to time out and re-entered the run course in third followed by Yahor Lapo (BLR) who moved through the field from 7th. Petroni fell back to 6th position while Marcin Horbacz (POL) climbed from 13th to fifth. Polivka returned for the final and third shot in the lead at least 70m in advance of Omar. Into the third set of shoots, Omar again faltered from which a number of competitors gained an advantage. Polivka again successful entered the course first, followed by Tadas Zemaitis (LTU) in second and Edvinas Krungolcas (LTU) in third. In the final 1km Krungolcas out did his fellow countryman, to overtake him with silver insight. Across the line Polivka took the gold with a solid lead, Krungolcas for silver and Zemaitis completed the podium with bronze. The fastest pentathlete in the field was Alvaro Sandoval of Mexico in 10:26.00.
In an exciting finale to the day’s competition, Laura Asadauskaite of Lithuania showed her preference and skill for the combined event, coming from fourth after three events to take the gold medal in the second World Cup of the season. Her speed on the run aided her from the beginning as she exited the range after the first shooting series in equal third and each of the next 1km rounds continued to make up ground. Aya Medany on home soil had the crowd wild with excitement as she took control of the lead after the second series of the shooting. But the speed of Asadauskaite could not be tamed and Medany was out run in the last 400m to take silver. Overall leader throughout the day Amelie Cazé of France fought hard and had an impressive run to complete the podium with the bronze medal. To recap the day’s events, Amelie Cazé of France was the leader throughout the day, having started with a strong fence where she scored the highest, an impressive 29V/6D, for 1092 points. In what was a repeat of the first World Cup in Mexico, Egyptian Aya Medany placed second with 1000 points. The two women show they are top of the international field in the moment with impressive bouts, confidently facing their opponents. To the pool the two competed in two separate heats based on their qualification times from Thursday. Medany in Heat 4 was the fastest with 2:16.00 earning her 1168 points, but it was not enough to topple Cazé who in Heat 5 touched for third in a time of 212.80 and 1208 points, extending her lead to 2304 over Medany’s total of 2168.
Hungarian Leila Gyenesei had the fastest swim in the pool with a time of 2:08.92.
|Out on the riding course at the Cairo Equestrian Stadium, Cazé
suffered a set-back with a difficult ride incurring a time penalty of 68
point and a further 40 points for obstacles. This placed her 22nd overall
in the event and only resulting in 1092 points. However this was still enough
to keep her in the lead overall after three events with a total 3396 points
giving her a lead of 34 seconds as she heads to the combined event. As if
to make the 4/7 competition at the top more intense, Medany also had difficulties
on the course , ironically earning the same points as Cazé (1092)
but placing one better in the event as a result of finishing the course
faster. So, again, after three events Medany sat behind Cazé on 3260
points. The best rides of the day were achieved by Donata Rimsaite (LTU)
and Anfisa Kasyanava (BLR) who were 20 points short (1180) of a perfect
score (1200) due to one knockdown on the course.
Heading to the combined, the top five pentathletes start within 52 seconds, a significant lead for Cazé with 34 seconds in advance of Medany. Following her was Polina Struchtkova (RUS) at 38 seconds, then Lucie Grolichova (CZE) and Laura Asadauskaite (LTU) both on 52 seconds.
|In the combined event the intensity of competition left everyone
with goose bumps and the crowd on the edge of their seats as the battle
for gold was played out. As the leader Cazé headed out the start
gate onto the range, taking three shots before Medany joined her to the
delight of the home crowd. She was soon followed by Struchtkova, Grolichova
and Asadauskaite. Cazé started her 1km as the other three reached
their stations. Medany soon followed making up ground with her fast shooting
skills. Returning to the range there only remained 10 metres between the
two, with Medany running beside her in the range. The tension mounted when
both missed their first shot. In the meantime Asadauskaite had made up ground
to return in third position.
Cazé was the first to finish her five shots and back out, Medany followed within 20 metres. Asadauskaite wasted no time and fires out of the range in pursuit. For the third series Medany returns to the range in first. The crowd went wild! Cazé felt the pressure of Asadauskaite who made up significant time following with less then 2 metres. In the range Cazé and Medany are shot for shot after 3. Cazé missed the fourth and Medany had the advantage. Medany hit the next two and was out for the final 1km. The crowd was beside themselves with excitement, every one shouting for Medany, edging her along. Cazé was next, but Asadauskaite was too close and overtook within the first 100m on the course. As the athletes slipped out of view the crowd waited in anticipation of their return with all hopes on Medany maintaining her lead from the powering Lithuanian. It is Asadauskaite who appeared first and did not break a stride with the finish line in site, happily taking home the gold. Medany put in a gallant effort in front of the fans but it was not enough, crossing the line for silver while Cazé received the bronze.
