No rest. No “off season”. No excuse. Leon Paul fencers are training really hard and the hard work always pays off.
Our club fencers had a very busy weekend again. Fencers traveled all around the country and the word and did bring shiny medals home.
We are very proud for all of the athletes. Well done Everyone.

Isabel Di Tella came 1st in the individual and 2nd with Argentina in the team event.
Fantastic result. Congratulations Isabel and good luck next week in the Pan American Championship.
African Championship – Tunis
Satya Gunput came back with a 9th place from the 2018 African Championship. He came 2nd a year ago in the senior men’s epee category so he is not very happy with this result and now even more focused and motivation for the upcoming World Championship in China.

Veteran National Championship – Manchester
THREE National veterans champions (out of a possible 8) today at Manchester: Kola, having driven up the previous day from The Bexley Open in Kent where he had won the silver medal, then became National Champion the Vets Cat A, Nicky also became National Champion in Vets Cat A, and Hugh completed a hat-trick of wins by becoming National Champion Cat C. Great day all round. – Pete Eames report.
2. Hugh Kernohan, 5. Kola Ayanwale, 8. Pete Eames, 31. Todd Glenn
Hugh already qualified for the next Veteran World Championship before this event but he needed to win his age group on the nationals to qualify for the team event too. Job done. He came first in his category and now we are waiting for the official selection.
1. Nicola Hull
Congratulation for all the medalist and well done for everyone.
