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.
