In the decisive match, Myroniuk had the advantage (10:6), but due to a lack of experience, she lost to Italian Arianna Errigo with a score of 10:15.

This is already the second medal of the European Championship in the history of Ukrainian women's foil. Previously, only Olha Leleiko managed to become the continental champion by winning a bronze medal in 2007.

At the beginning of May, Ukrainian female foil fencers won a historic bronze at the World Cup in Hong Kong.
