The Estonian men's epee team finished 27th in the ongoing FIE World Fencing Championships in Milan, Italy.
The Estonian team (pictured) took party in two matches, winning 45:35 against Panama then going down 44:37 against South Korea, ranked fifth in the world.
A total of 46 teams began the world championships, and as noted Estonia finished 27th and will progress no further.
The decisive matches are to be played Saturday.
The more well-known women's epee team managed ninth place overall at the same world championships; the team, reigning olympic champions, could have done with placing higher if they are to ensure qualification to next year's olympics, in Paris.
