Congrats to ex-BFC member Victoria Duxbury on her 27th place finish in the Junior World Cup event held in Lyon last Sat 13th Dec. From 98 competitors Victoria was ranked 38th after the poules, won her L64 fight 15-14, but went out to an Italian in the L32 ranked no.6. An impressive result with Victoria finishing ahead of the whole 8 strong British U20 team. Well done Victoria!

Last weekend Keziah took part in her 5th British Selection Circuit (BSC) Cadet event of the year, held in the new purpose-built Leon Paul Fencing Centre in London. In the poules Keziah won 7 from 8 over 2 rounds, giving a poule ranking of 7th and a bye into the L32. She then won her L32 fight 15-7, but lost in the L16, taking her into a repechage round of the L24. She then won her first repechage fight 15-12 to go back into the L16, where she then lost to a tricky left-hander 12-15 to finish 15th overall. Well done Kez!
