French fencing body recognizes lightsaber dueling as a sport

Wow we've come a lonnnnng way in the last decade and a half...perhaps this is too late for Paris 2024 but someday eh? :)
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

I wish we would see sport clubs offering lightsaber fencing in Germany too :)

I hope the sport limits the number of footsteps allowed to encourage actual blade works, instead of people skipping around trying to poke like most dueling groups today  :cheesy:
