Amelie G is the Best U14 Female Fencer in the SE
Amelie has always fenced very gracefully and with spirit, but who would have thought that at her very first competition she would win gold? The South-East sabre fencing championships, which took place on 25th February in Tonbridge, are designed to see who can participate in the British Youth Championships, so you have the very best fencers of a region competing. Amelie faced some stiff competition, but kept her cool, despite being nervous, and won every bout. This meant she was the number 1 seed when going into the direct elimination round, and she kept her position right to the final. This was a close fight with the score notching up to 9-9. Amelie scored the winning point and won 10-9 as well as gold. What a fantastic result – congratulations!
