Blackheath takes medals at London Region Competition

Blackheath past and present members made a good showing at England Fencing – London Region’s  Novice and Intermediate Competition at St Benedict’s School Ealing on 10th July.

With five fencers competing and four taking medals out of a total entry of 46 fencers on this day of the Euro16 and Wimbledon finals that’s quite an impressive result!

Mable Chambers, an ex Musketeer now at Kent University, took Gold in the Women’s Novice Epee. Having come 5th of 6 in the poules she says her best position is to be 7-10 down in the DE to motivate her to win! And she did!

Gurlal Jagdev took silver in the Mens Intermediate Epee

Stephen Wood took Silver in the Mens Intermediate Foil, under the Morley Blades flag but also a Blackheath Fencer in recent months.

Valerio Radolovich, a beginner in September 2015, took Silver in Mens Novice foil (fencing under Morley Blades but now back at Blackheath after moving closer).

And last but not least

Decordoba Mitchell-Rowe, also a beginner in September 2015, came 5th in the Mens Novice Epee in his first competition

Well done all of you!
