Wow! It’s been a busy start to the new season. I’m now fencing in the under 20’s events and has also been selected to fence as part of the GB U20 squad, as a result of my results so far at selection competitions.
My first competition was The Bristol Open , which is a senior event and i made a good placing of 20th! This meant i was then selected for the GB U20 first international in Luxembourg, i was selected for this competition last year whilst still a cadet ( U17 fencer).
I have since competed in quiet a few more competitions both at senior and U20 level and one of my best results was in Gateshead where i came 3rd ! I have now been selected to be part of the U20 squad for the next two internationals and am currently sitting in about 4th-6th place in the national U 20 rankings, i’m currently waiting to see if i have moved up a place in the rankings following my 6th place win at the Allstar Cup another senior event this weekend. Not bad for my first real year competing at U20’s.
I would also like to thank Asda for my top-up grant that i received last week, this will go towards paying for my next U 20’s international competition to be held in Poland, 4 days before my 17th birthday !!
