Fencing success for Nathalie!Posted on 09/12/2019
Congratulations to SRA student Nathalie who has recently been awarded a place on the U14 England fencing squad for the Paris Marathon in February, next year!
Nathalie told us 'in 2019, there were almost 200 fencers participating in my category. And, after every stage, 20% are cut; so, I know a girl from Israel flew 4.5 hours to be eliminated after fencing for 45 minutes and then went home. So, the pressure is on every fight, it is really frightening.'
Nathalie finished the season ranked 4th and with only eight fencers selected to represent England this year, she has done amazingly well!
Well done Nathalie and good luck for February!
