    Clock didn't freeze. Everything was within the time. The problem is that a) the time is kept manually and not electronically and b) only full seconds are shown.

    After double hit 1 1.9 secs were left, 1.2 after double hit 2 and her decisive hit was within the time also. To quote both fencers "it was a technicality and not an athlete's thing".
