European Fencing Team Cup – Italy

Following the Leon Paul Epee Club victory at the British Women’s National Team Championships our ladies qualified for the Europe Fencing Club Cup. This is a very prestigious tournament with all the top fencers and clubs from all over Europe. 
Leon Paul had a very strong poule, fencing together with Italy, Ukraine and Finland. The team finished the poule with 1V-2D.
 
After the poule matches Leon Paul fenced against that same Ukrainian team in the L16. In the first round the Ukrainian team won by two hits but this time, with new tactics, Leon Paul dominated and in strong fight we beat Ukraine and qualified to the top 8.
 
The next match was again a tough draw but this is the tournament where only top elite fencers and clubs are compere so there is no easy match. This time we faced against Italy and lost 27-45. 
 
This result means that  Leon Paul Women’s Epee Team finished top 8 in Europe. 
This is a fantastic result, we are super proud for you Ladies! CONGRATULATIONS!!
 
Final result:
1. Russia – Team Russia
2. Russia – Samara
3. Italy – Fiamme Oro
