The 2010 Marathon Fleuret had an impressive total of 835 foilists competing from 30+ countries, 890 entered - 55 no-shows, in the menís and womenís cadet and minimes events (Menís Cadet 206, Womenís Cadet 84, Menís Minimes 363, Womenís Minimes 182 - note Minimes = born 1995-1996, age group below is Benjamin = born 1997-1998).
Congratulations on the participation of our fencers in the Men's Minime Foil, Felix Boyce (1995) and Clovis Dyson (1996):
Felix Boyce and Clovis Dyson
Felix Boyce placed 153rd, seeded 134th in to the DE of 256. He was eliminated by 123rd seed Floris Abrams of Belgium. Clovis Dyson, eliminated after the 2nd round of pools, placed 258th and was just 2 places of making the DE of 256 fencers. Medalists: 1st Alessandro Bertolazzi (ITA), 2nd Adras Nemeth (HUN), 3rd= Romain Minaro (FRA) and Niels Acuti (FRA). 12 year old SHIKINO Takahiro of Japan produced an impressive performance placing 14th, as perhaps the highest placed young fencer in the Minimes Menís Foil field. Another outstanding performance came in the Menís Cadet event. Only 3 countries had fencers in the top 20. The USA cadet team took the first six places over all the highly rated European nations. USA had 7 cadet fencers in the top 10 and 9 in the top 20. France had 7cadets in the top 20 and Japan had 4. With the World Cadet Championships about 7 weeks away, watch this space. The future power centres for world youth fencing is being strongly signaled here and moving out of Europe.
