The Allstar Cup 2015
The Allstar Cup was held in Bangkok, Thailand from 15 to 16 August this year. It is a yearly event that caters only to Sabre fencing at multiple age groups. This was the first time we supported the event as a club, and we are proud that our young fencers have done well in their inaugural international tournament!
Our older girls Joyce, Nicole, Rosamond, Minji and Xinyi participated in the Cadet and Junior categories as a warm-up for the coming season which begins in September. Joyce and Nicole lost in the quarterfinals of the Junior and Cadet events but it was still a good learning experience for them. Rosamond, Minji and Xinyi did well to reach the top 16, as it was their first time competing overseas. We hope they will be encouraged by this performance and work towards greater goals!
Our young fencers also excelled in this competition, with Megan winning Bronze in the U14 category as well as becoming Champion in the U12 category. Well done! Isaac also had his first taste of international competition and he fought hard to finish in the top 16. Yu Qi also did well but unfortunately met Megan in the semi-finals of the U12 to finish with a Bronze. Finally, our youngest team member Bryan fenced well and was rewarded with a Silver in his first overseas event.
This has been an encouraging start to the season and we are looking forward to the upcoming calendar!
Congratulations to our winners:
Megan Au - U12 Champion, U14 Bronze
Bryan Hoh - U10 Silver
Wong Yu Qi - U12 Bronze
