Only 3 individual places are available for each weapon and gender per country. (Celine Chong in Women's Epee Junior qualified but was unable to accept due to her studies in medical school.)
In women's foil cadet, our Z fencers and coaches did us proud by earning all three spots in the event. A milestone not easy to achieve and we are indeed grateful to all whom played a role to make this happen.
For the cadets, this will also be the quaifying event for the YOG 2014 in Nanjing. We wish our fencers whom are eligible for qualification including Jet Ng, Samuel Lee, Nicole Mae Wong and Aarya Berthier the very best in their attempt to qualify for the Youth Olympics. BELIEVE!
A special mention to all coaches Joseph, James, Gabor, Fritz, Jing Li and Edward for playing an important part in their journey to their qualifications. We would also like to recognise the efforts of all their team mates whom trained together and supported their bid for quaifications. Your turn will come soon enough!
Let us all as one Z Family, congratulate and wish our Z Fencers and coaches a succesful campaign. May you inspire the best for all of us!
