This season Gravesham Fencing Club member Holly Snellin’s fencing journey has taken her to Belgrade and Estonia to represent Great Britain. Here is her report:
I was recently lucky enough to fence at a Satellite competition in Belgrade & World Cup in Tallinn.
Belgrade was a very good competition for my first International at a senior level. I fenced okay in the poule so was able to fence in a DE. I fenced okay, however nerves & excitement overcame me & I made many mistakes. I was knocked out by a Romanian fencer & didn’t progress any further.
Tallinn was a very eye opening experience! This competition was of an extremely high standard where I was brushing shoulders with Olympic medalists!
I went to this competition knowing the standard was incredible, so I tried to use it as almost a training competition where I could put into practice what I had been learning in lessons.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience & learnt huge amounts! This competition has made me more determined to train even harder!
In addition to his victory at the Norfolk Open, over the Summer Joe Joyner also finished second at the Cambridge Open. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Joe Joyner on recently winning the Norfolk Senior Men’s Open Epee Championship.
