On 18th-19th January, our fencers participated in the Novices Fencing Championships 2020.
Congratulations to Zjien Ng Yee Sheng (GDL) for winning Silver in the Men’s Épée Individual event. Zjien won all his bouts convincingly in pools and was seeded in 1st place for the direct elimination round. He showed great fighting sprit and determination but settled for a Silver after a well and hard fought bout in the finals.
Special mentions to Chan Jonas Ze Xian and Choong Julian Jace for finishing in Top 8. Both fencers put up a good fight but missed out on the podium by just a single point.
Great job to all fencers for achieving these results from a pool of 100 fencers.
In the Women’s Épée Individual event, Choong Zi Cheng (GDL) put up a dominant performance and clinched the Gold medal!

She then won all her bouts, notably the finals where she won it with a score of 15-5 to claim the Gold medal.
