London Fencing Club Championships 2018

Saturday, 7 July 2018. While other distinguished athletes competed on the hot green fields of Wimbledon and Samara, dozens of unwavering fencers met in the air-conditioned vaults of Finsbury centre to fight for the medals of the Club Tournament 2018.

The competition took place in all six categories, progressing from group stage to Direct Elimination (DE). The fighting was as intense as it was courteous. A number of bouts went to the dramatic 14:14 score and were decided by the very last hit. At least once the priority draw had to be used: in the remarkable epee fight between Kareem and Nick where Nick being 3 points behind at 11:14 managed to catch up and score the equalizing point at the very last second of the bout. In the additional minute he was awarded the priority however Kareem regained his composure and scored the winning point of the fight with the direct attack to the chest.

Well done to all participants and congratulations to the winners!
