A Little Trinket

First medal in fencing and it’s a bronze! But don’t ride your horses off into the wild yet — there were only 7 people fencing Sabre, and initially I did badly against everyone in the pool. Fencing more with them allowed me to warm up and pick up on their styles. I hadn’t fenced with most of them before, so it was a good learning experience.

My friend Matt did one  better and got a silver in Epee (even though there were also only 7 people) so I’m happy for him. Hopefully these results will give us Brownie points in getting into the school travel team.

    Wow that’s so cool !!! First medal I’ve seen in fencing too. Praise the Lord for the good work. Though it’s a small group but you still managed to make it through to top 3. Steady!! Well done! *applause*

    Haha it’s not as though I won the Olympics. Yes it’s something, but it’s not that big…I’ll just be glad if everyone else thought it was worth something. 🙂
