International Fencing success!


International Fencing success!

During the July holiday, our Dio fencers continued their successful run this year across the Tasman, with Lena Jacob and Chantelle May competing in the Australian National U-17 and U-15 Championships held in Sydney. 

In the U-17 Women’s Foil, Lena finished with a bronze medal, narrowly missing out on a place in the final after a 15-14 semi, with Chantelle finishing eighth. 

Chantelle went on to compete in the Australian U-15 Women’s Foil competition the following day, where she finished with a gold medal after an exciting 15-14 final. She also came home with a silver from the U-17 and a bronze in the U-15 teams’ events.  

Congratulations to Lena and Chantelle, and we look forward to more successes for the Dio team in the upcoming months.
