Tbilisi (Georgia), Jan 14, 2022- All Indian fencers, including Tokyo Olympian Bhavani Devi, were knocked out of the women’s individual sabre 2022 Fencing World Cup, here on Friday. The 28-year-old Bhavani, who is the first fencer from India to compete at the Olympics, was the only countrywoman to make it to the round of 64 at the tournament.
