Foil Results - "Budapest Cup" 9-10 November 2019

European Cadet Circuit Championships "Budapest Cup" 9-10 November 2019

This weekend saw Ellen Buckley representing Great Britain at the foil Cadet International in Budapest, Hungary.

Day 1 was teams and Ellen started Saturday as sub for GBR1 (pictured). Ellen and her Team-mates had a bye through the L64 to meet Poland 3 in their first DE. Ellen came on at a low point for the team and made a big difference, with GBR1 going on to win the match 45/42. Ellen was off the bench from the start of the next match against Poland 1 but despite a great effort from the team, the opposition proved too strong (this time!) and GBR1 finished 10th of 39.

Day 2 saw the individuals and a tough pool. With two nail-biting 5-4 losses and opponents from France, Germany and Russia, it's one to build experience and resilience. Our piste-side reporter tells us that Ellen fenced if anything even better than the previous day, and was unfortunately only a couple of hits away from promotion to finish 198th. Well done, Ellen – excellent effort!
