Fencing Success

Freddie Ford is already making waves at national level and he excelled himself again in the IAPS Fencing Championships at Millfied Prep last weekend coming third in the U11 Sabre competition.┬áThere were two rounds of poules, each poule consisting of 4 bouts and each bout lasted until the first person reached 5 hits. Freddie won every bout in each poule. Following the poules were the DE (Direct Eliminations). Freddie received a bye into the last 32 and won his next two bouts – getting into the last 16 and then the last 8. In the semifinals Freddie was knocked out and came 3rd. A fantastic result.
