Kharlan strikes gold in Moscow

Ukraine’s Olga Kharlan kept her composure to down Yana Egorian of Russia in the women’s sabre final at the Moscow Grand Prix on Sunday.

The two-time world champion, who took bronze at the Summer Olympics in 2012, downed Ekaterina Dyachenko in the semis before proving too strong for Egorian in the showpiece match.

The 24-year-old looked in great shape and eventually prevailed 15-10, giving her a major boost ahead of the European Championships which get underway in Switzerland on June 5.
