Asgardian Monthly - National Team Selection, Hong Kong U14

National Junior and Cadet Team Selections

The final selection for the Cadet and Junior National Team was made on 16th Jan 2017, with the selected fencers representing Singapore at the upcoming Asian and World Championships. We are proud to announce that both Nicole Wee and Lau Ywen have been selected for both the Cadet and Junior teams, comprising half of the women’s sabre team. Well done!

Ywen finished the qualifying campaign on top of both Cadet and Junior national rankings, while Nicole finished 2nd for the Cadet rankings and 3rd for the Junior rankings. They will now be focusing on the major games ahead, with the Asian Championships at the end of February and the World Championships in early April.

HK U-14 Championships

Some of our up and coming young fencers took part in the Hong Kong U14 Championships over a weekend in January, and they did a fantastic job in returning with two bronzes in the women’s sabre event. Congratulations to Heidi and Calista who finished with medals, and also good fencing from Megan who finished in the top 8, and Maddy and Kirsten who finished in the top 16 and 32 respectively. It was their first time fencing alone without coaching support, and they have certainly shown themselves to be independent and capable athletes. Well done!
