European Cadet Circuit at Bratislava Jan 23-24, 2016

Cindy Gao's (TFC) bronze medal win at the European Fencing Circuit (EFC) event in Cadet Women's Epee in Bratislava, an event that featured 256 fencers!  Gao lost her final bout in the semi-final 15-11 to the eventual winner Alessanda Bozza from Italy to earn bronze with a major muscle cramp in this thigh which limited her ability to lunge.

The Canadian Team of Mateusz Kozak (TFC), Daniel Li (TFC), James Jonas (Calgary, AB) and Boris Bojanov (Calgary, AB)  finished top half of the field in 9th place in Cadet Men's Team Foil in the Bratislava EFC event. They defeated Germany, Egypt and had a great comeback against Ukraine 1. In the last two bouts, the team had a 15 point comeback, and Mateusz Kozak scored 10 points against Ukraine's anchor to win 39 to 38 in overtime.
