France dominated the competition at the International Fencing Federation Women's Épée World Cup in Nanjing, although Hungary's Anna Kun took home the gold medal at the women's single event.

The 37-year-old Kun took home her first World Cup gold medal after defeating Alexandra Louis Marie in the final 15-10 at the at the Yangzi River International Conference Center.

It was an impressive comeback from Kun, who had missed the opportunity of home glory when she had been beaten in the final of FIE Épée Grand Prix in Budapest earlier this month by Estonia's Renata Knapik-Miazga.

Kun had beaten France's Camille Nabeth in the semi-final 15-6, while Louis Marie defeated her team-mate Auriane Mallo 15-8.

With such strength in depth, it was perhaps no surprise that France went on to lift the team title.

They defeated world champions South Korea in the final 45-35 

Louis Marie and Mallo were joined by Marie-Florence Candassamy as they recovered from being 5-3 down in the first round.

Candassamy lost the first round to Injeoung Choi, but it was all France after that.

They took total control after the eighth round when they doubled their lead from three to six.

Candassamy then confirmed their victory as she increased the lead to ten in the final round.

 In third place was Italy, who lost to France 36-27 in the semi-final, while the other podium finisher was Poland who lost to South Korea.
