FeNZThe Commonwealth Fencing Junior and Cadet New Zealand Team would like to expressly thank all those who were involved in the build up and execution of such a fantastic and successful tour.

We would like to thank Four Winds Grant Foundation for their support to get our team uniform and A1 screenprinting for producing great quality uniform in such a quick turn around.

To all the parents, families and friends, without you these fencers wouldn't be able to get on the piste. Thank you for enabling these fencers to enjoy their passion and aim high.

To the coaches and training partners, well done! Keep working hard and pushing each other to get better and achieve more. Let's get more and more fencers able and out there fencing.

Thank you to Fencing New Zealand for supporting and encouraging fencing in New Zealand.

Lastly, thank you to the fencers and travelling support for making it such an enjoyable and memorable experience. I am truly proud to have been your Team Manager.

FeNZAt the recent Commonwealth Fencing Junior and Cadet Championships held in Cape Town the team had the best results of any Junior Commonwealth event NZ has attended.

We would like to wish congratulations to our outstanding achievers!

Felix Boyce, the recipient of 3 Bronze Medals, had a spectacular result, the best any individual NZ fencer has had at a Commonwealth Junior event;
Felix, seeded 19 after poules, placed 3rd= in Mens Foil going out in a hard fought semi final against Kamal Minott (ENG) losing 15-9 . Felix then got on the piste in the Mens Epee and aced his poule, seeding 3rd and reaching the semi-final to face Tomas Curran Jones (ENG) going down in a close 15-12 defeat. Thirdly, as one of the anchors of the Mens Foil Team, Felix helped the team effort to secure the Bronze medal.

Wai Ling Chan secured our next highest individual result with a stellar 5th place. Unfortunately going down the the quarter finals 15-8 against a very dynamic Elisabeth Powell (ENG) the eventual silver medalist.

Louis Jennings secured the top NZ spot in the Men's Cadet Epee. Placing 6th after defeating James Harwood (fellow kiwi who took out the 6th seed!) in the de16. Louis lost to eventual winner - Ben Schneider (ENG) 15-11.

Sheldon Ogilvie secured the 7th place spot in the Men's Cadet Epee by taking out the 2nd seed in the de16 in a nail biter 15-14. Going down the George Morris (WAL) in the qarter-final a close 15-13.

Another stand out performance was Brittany Wyatt in the Cadet Womens Epee. After a tough poule she was placed 24th and took out 9th seed 15-14. Next DE she took out 8th see 15-14. Getting through to the quarter finals and going down against the eventual silver medallist.

Mens Foil Team (Daniel Garelja, Felix Boyce, Daniel Keleghan, Nathanael Walker-Hale) all helped the effort and secured the team bronze medal. Seeding 4th they beat Scotland in a bold performance of their skill as a team. Followed by semi final defeat at the hands of the English (many lessons learned). Last up was the play off for third. A well supported victory against India lead NZ to their second consecutive Junior Mens Foil Team Medal.

There were many upsets, victories and defeats that all warrant applause and recognition. Everyone in the Team got out there and fenced their best, a special mention to the rest of the team who all made commendable personal achievements: Nicole Martin, James Harwood, Nick Henderson, Darya Kharitonova and Christine Chen.

Congratulations to the whole team on doing your country proud!
