Fencing Success

Congratulations to Daniel Sigurdsson (L6) who got a silver medal at the British Youth Championships this weekend in the U18 foil category. The British Youth Championships in Fencing are held annually at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield and host the top qualifying fencers from across the UK. Daniel fenced superbly throughout the day, including a hugely impressive comeback from 8-14 down in the quarter-final to triumph 15-14. Having cruised through the semi-final, Da
niel narrowly lost his first bout of the day in the final. This is an impressive result and cements Daniels standing as one of the very best junior fencers in the UK.

Also a well done to Isak Sigurdsson (3R) who fought well in the U14 category in the same competition. Having qualified to represent NI he improved on his last year performance, won his first knock-out fight and reached the round of 64.
