Less than two weeks ago, Delila Hatuel recorded the biggest and saddest win of her career. The 27-year-old beat Olympic champion Valentina Vezzali in the last 16 of the foil European Championships in Kiev, but injured her knee towards the end of the encounter and, as a result, will be entering the Olympics nowhere near 100 percent fit. Hatuel has finished among the top-10 in the World Cup circuit on a consistent basis and has been ranked among the world's top-16 throughout 2008. Last year she just missed out on a medal at the European Championships, finishing in sixth position. Hatuel, who is trained by her father, Haim, will be following in the footsteps of uncle Yitzhak, who competed in the 1984 Olympic Games and her aunt, Lydia, who represented Israel in three Olympic Games.
