2012-03-26

The team has just finished its 4th World Cup of the season which took place in Budapest. Leading up to the competition they had a 2 week training camp in Budapest which was attended by fencers from Hungary, Canada, Japan, Finland, Belgium, China, Korea, Mexico, Venezuela and more...

On the first day of the competition, Monica, Kelleigh, Eleanor, Shannon and Alanna passed through the first phase of elimination. After 2 rounds of elimination bouts, Kelleigh was still in, earning her a spot in the second day of elimination. She fenced Elisa Difrancisca of Italy, number 2 fencer in the world. Unfortunately she did not continue on. Kelleigh finished 64th.

In the team event, Canada lost to a very motivated Hungarian team but went on to beat Romania and China before their top 10 loss to the Ukraine. This is the team's second top 10 finish of the year. Before this year, Canadian women's foil rarely did better than 12th place.
