Winter 2018

Touche – it’s nearly half way through the year and our Blades have been training hard towards upcoming competitions. For our junior and senior blades, it has been continuous with various competitions for all age groups and even our new beginners have given it a go to see what competitions are all about:

Paul Kurtyka, gold medal at the season opener in Veteran Men’s Epee
Robert Ciccarelli, silver medal
Roberta Nutt U18
Robert Ciccarelli, bronze medal u23 State Championships

Exciting time for Robert Ciccarelli who went over to Udine, Italy, and Bratislava with the Australian Fencing Team for the European Tour COPPA DEL MONDO under 20 Junior Cadet Foilist. It was a great experience and wonderful results from the Australian team. Not just Europe, Robert also went to Dubai UAE, for the 2018 Asian Cadet & Junior Championships. Great result for Robert – final ranking 11th in Cadet Men’s Foil, top 16 finish ranking 13th in the Junior Men’s Foil.

That’s not all for Robert. He was also selected to represent Australia at the 2018 World Cadet & Junior Championships, which will be held in Verona, Italy. We wish Robert all the very best on this exciting journey.

Congratulations to Mitchel Fox who is part of our fencing network on his wedding.
