On 30 October our fencers competed in Stratford-Upon-Avon. This was a senior competition where Lexie C won the gold medal, remaining unbeaten throughout the day and beating senior fencers who represent Great Britain in the senior World Cup and Grand Prix. The following weekend Lexie fenced in the U23 national championship in London. She had another fabulous day. Just like in the previous weekend she won all of her fights and became the British U23 Champion in women`s sabre.
In Stratford-Upon-Avon, in the men`s sabre event Henry Martin finished at the top16. With this result, Henry qualified himself for the senior World Cup in Orleans (France).
Aimee W and Lauren A were also selected to represent Great Britain in the next two U17 European Circuits in Sofia (Bulgaria) and Eislingen (Germany).
The youngest fencers competed in Stratford a week later than the seniors. In their next LPJS competition Chris L came 2nd in the U15 boys’ event. He lost the final with 1 point. This was Chris` 5th podium in the year. Etienne S came 3rd in the U13 boys` competition. He lost only one fight in the poule rounds and only the gold medalist could beat him in the semi-final.
