Helsinki Longsword Open 2022
Open Longsword is capped at 72 participants, Sabre at 24 participants, Longsword cutting at 30 and Katana at 12 participants. Womens Longsword does not have a participant cap at the moment.
You will automatically take part in the Triathlon if you register for at least one of the Longsword tournaments (women can take part in both) and cutting and sabre. If you take part in both of the Longsword tournaments, only your higher placement will count towards your Triathlon placement.
