Ready? Here are your questions:

Question 1

Its name is based on the Japanese words for ‘future’ and ‘eternity’. It has a personality inspired by the Japanese proverb, “learn from the past and develop new ideas”. It is described as cheerful and remarkably athletic, with a special power to instantly teleport anywhere it wants. Who are we talking about?

Question 2

Question 3

Which olympic sport, that has featured in every edition since the first Modern Olympic Games is divided into these three categories – epee, foil and sabre?

Question 4
