Fencing Success

Wycombe Abbey fencing squad returned with a winner from a local tournament.

The young athletes were invited to Zhongheng Fencing Center for an afternoon of competition to test their skills against others.

WAIS entered six fencers from the Primary School and nine in Secondary.

D. Yu displayed great talent to win the U15 Epee Fencing with J. Yu second and J. Zhang and A. Zhang third.

In the U8’s group T. Chen and S. Zhou both did well and in Secondary credible showings came from K. Chen, K. Li and Blen Li.

It was the first time the primary fencers took part in a contest representing the school, which was a fantastic experience for them. They only have to look to their secondary counterparts at WAIS for inspiration, who swept all before them and won every category in the senior age groups.

The fencing squad enjoyed the event and look forward to more tournaments in the future.
