2006-09-25 08:36 - Gold For New Zealand Women’s Epee Team
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZThe New Zealand women’s epee team of Jessica Beer, Jennifer Hope and Kathlene Revie won the Belfast Commonwealth Fencing Championship team event, beating the Australian  title holders to win convincingly 45-38.

In the semi finals Jessica Beer held on to assure New Zealand of a Women’s Epee Team medal. She scored the winning point in extra time of a cliff hanger semi-final match against South Africa. After nine consecutive bouts the team score was tied 32-32. A final minute of extra time added and Jessica scored the last golden touch.

Kathlene Revie, Jennifer Hope and Jessica Beer first eliminated England to reach the semi finals and then took on the current Commonwealth Champion Team and top seed Austalia.

This medal is the first for New Zealand at the Commonwealth Fencing Championships, and 36 years since Commonwealth Games medals were won by New Zealand fencers.

“These women gave everything and won. This team Commonwealth Fencing Championship medal is fantastic and shows the strong effort  from for our fencers since the Athens Olympics where we had only one fencer competing” said Martin Brill, team manager and president of Fencing New Zealand.
