A brilliant result for Laura Sheffield in the international U15 competition, Challenge Wratislava.
Brixton fencers have been taking part in this competition, which takes place in Wroclaw, Poland, for 10 years now and this is the first Gold at the competition for the club.
This is just the latest in a series of excellent results for Laura and we wish her the best of luck with the best of the season, particularly at the upcoming World Championships.
Well done to Tarriq Roach who won the Public Schools's Fencing Championship. Tarriq was competing in the Mount Haes competition for students in year 8-9. Also congratulations to Helen Sheffield who finished 5th in the Junior Girls competition.
Brixton had three fencers at the Cadet and Junior European Championships in Maribor.
Laura Sheffield fenced in the Cadet Womens Epee. She had a tough time in the individual finishing 85th but helped the team to an impressive 11th place.
In Junior Men's Epee Tommy Curran Jones and Aml Sinclair achieved 20th and 38th respectively. They built on these strong individual results in the team, first beating the host nation Slovenia and then knocking out the higher ranked Italy in a nail biting 45-44 L16. In the Last 8 they faced Romania and fell behind early on. In the last bout Britain were 38-34 down but Curran Jones pulled out an impressive 11-2 win to clinch the fight and a place in the semi finals. They faced the favourites Hungary and were unable to overcome this strong team. In the Bronze medal match they fenced against the Israeli team, which contained the newly crowned European Champion, and despite some great fencing all round lost 44-42.
A very encouraging performance, especially for the two younger fencers and we hope they can do even better at the World Championships next month.
