2019-01-16 12:30 - New Zealand Fencing makes a stir in Poland and new contacts in Italy and Spain
Posted by HopkinsAmanmore from same (International)
InternationalWith Lena's 8th place in the European Cadet Circuit in Poznan, and the girls' team performing very creditably in their first time out - with a win over the Belarus 3 and a great performance against USA (losing 45 to 40), the organisers and other teams are taking note.

Success can be achieved in fencing by youngsters training and competing in New Zealand.

Our fencers have been very well received - both at the tournaments (Italy (foil), Paris (foil and epee), Germany (Epee), Poland (Foil) and the training venues (Slovakia and Hungary for Foil and France, Hungary and Spain for Epee). Competing and training are:
Foil: Lena Jacob, Imogen Everett, Naomi Holland, Freddy Hopkins with Coach Anya Kamynina, plus Germany based Julius Herzhoff.
Epee: Sheldon Ogilvy, Tamsyn Campbell, Claire Cooper with Coach Sheldon

The Italian competition organisers in Udine have personally invited the team back next year for their big anniversary and showed their appreciation to our fencers and coach (Anya) for making the considerable journey to compete in their competitions (Junior Girls and Boys Foil and Girls Epee).

Fencing New Zealand has also signed a cooperation agreement with the Italian Fencing Federation, which will allow closer ties and our fencers to compete in regional competitions in Italy.

Sheldon is also making new contacts and has been well received with his team of Epeeists, who will be competing soon in Slovakia and Spain. They have already competed in Paris and Heidenheim.

Good luck to all our fencers competing in Europe, congratulations and we hope you enjoy the experience and come back enthusiastic for the coming year of fencing.
