Two Cadet Foil Events Held in Germany

Cadet Men’s Foil – Halle

Matthew Abrahams was Great Britain’s sole representative in Halle, Germany at the weekend.  He had a cracking start to the day beating all of his six first round opponents.  That earned him a bye through the incomplete round of 256.  In the 128 he beat Schaetzke (GER) 15-6 but then lost 15-11 to Klein (GER) to finish 37th

Michael Li (USA) beat his compatriot Shane Iverson 15-12 to take the title as Mohamed Hamza (EGY) and Silvio Rosu (ROU) picked up the bronze medals.

GB individual placing:  Abrahams 37th.
