Titled Ukrainian sabre fencer Olga Kharlan for the first time since 2004, returns to the European championship without a medal.

Seven-time European champion, winner of the European games, as well as 18-time winner of European Championships in individual and team competitions Harlan went to the European championship in Tbilisi after undergoing shoulder surgery and the championship became her only a third international start after recovery. Perhaps the leader of our team cost to spare, but the other partner for the Olympic team in Rio won a silver medal, was also injured.
