Day 1 of the fencing in Jersey saw the Men's Individual Foil up first.
Results coming out of the poules saw Dan Kahu handily placed at 7th, and Hamish Chan 12th. A solid DE bout by Dan against Australian Alasdair Dunham finished 15/9, with a very close bout in the next round against Canadian Alastair Keyes with Dan going down 15/14. Final placing for Dan was 11th.
Hamish Chan met fellow team mate Julius Herzhoff first up in the DE with a 15/7 win, followed by a 15/10 win over Sam Mooney Grand from Australia. In the final 8, Hamish met Englishman Amol Rattan losing the bout 15/9, with a final placing of 6th.
Other placings for the team were Max Rolland 15th, Julius Herzhoff 24th and Haz Forrester 28th.
Well done to all the team.
With no fencers up on Tuesday the next up are the Men's Epee and Women's Foil Individuals on Wednesday.
