On Sunday, 10th February, Clara S travelled the long hours and miles to Truro, Cornwall, to fence there at England’s pre-eminent fencing club and show her mettle. In a difficult group (Clara has just moved up to the U11s) she won some important fights, among others beating the subsequent number one. She sailed into the semi-finals and then faced a fencer she’d beaten before for entry into the finals. She led 8-6, but then lost momentum and the fight a very close 9-10. Clara returned from Cornwall with a bronze medal and a very good achievement. Well done!
