Blackheath takes medals in Kent Junior Foil Competition

Three of our 5 entrants to the 2012 Kent Junior Foil competition took home medals this afternoon (20th May). Sofiya Marynyak took Bronze in the Girls U12 Alex Kingston took Silver in the boys U12 and Tom Bevan took Bronze in the Boys U14. This was the first proper competition for both Tom and Sofiya who can be proud of their achievements. The other two entrants in the boys U12, Peter Tsirushkin and Sam Fruen (also in his first comp) both got through to the second round of the DE before being knocked out. The boys displayed commendable camaraderie as they supported each other through the comp especially Alex who had a difficult final against a strong opponent. Sofiya earned respect and friends for the way she determinedly pushed through a difficult and rather painful early round fight against an inexperienced fencer and there were words of praise from coaches for the other boys too. A great day and a great result for our Musketeers.
