European Championships, Plovdiv – March 2017

Fencers Bertie, Maria and Caitlin all distinguished themselves for the GB Team at the Junior European Under 17 and Under 20 Fencing Championships in Plovdiv last week.

Caitlin finished in 22nd place in the Under 20 Women’s Sabre category, with Maria taking a fantastic 15th place. Bertie also fenced solidly all day in the Under 17 Men’s Sabre and took 19th place in the individual event.

Despite losing to Russia in the Quarter Finals, the Under 17 Boys’ GB Sabre team, including Luke, Sam and Bertie, were delighted to end the season ranked No. 1 in Europe.

What a fantastic achievement!
