Monique Coleman of Wellington's Hutt Valley Fencing Club struck Gold for New Zealand, twice, to take the Oceania Champion’s title in the individual Women's Foil and Women’s Epee events.
Monique, our new double Oceanic Champion lined up in the Women’s Epee Team event with Nancy Liu (Auckland University Fencing Club) and Susan Grant-Taylor (HVFC). With some great team work, they combined strongly. They won and took a third gold medal and the Women’s Epee Team Oceania Champion title for New Zealand, a Champion’s title each for Nancy and Susan, making it a hat trick of gold around Monique’s neck.
"It was great for our fencers, to be able to fence and perform against the strong fencers from Australia, New Caledonia and for the first time the very good fencers from Tahiti." said Susan-Grant Taylor, our Association’s President. "The New Caledonians presented a wonderful event and were very welcoming."
