Olga Kharlan wins world fencing silver


20-year-old Ukrainian fencer Olga Kharlan loses to Mariel Zagunis from the United States in the final of the women's sabre event at the 2010 World Fencing Championships in Paris.

Zagunis is the current Olympic champion and beat Kharlan in last year's final in Turkey. If Kharlan is to win gold at the London Olympics, she must find a way to defeat her American rival.
