AAA Championship, April 1, Montreal

Our female foilists made this last event of the AAA circuit quite memorable. With two medals and a promising debut in the top 8, the team is getting strong and dangerous. Moreover, the third medal in a row for Swee Tan secured her the top position in the AAA ranking this year. Congratulations, Swee! Well done, ladies!!!

WF: Swee Tan won the competition with the convincing scores of 15-6, 15-11 and 15-11 in her elimination bouts. With a second gold medal over the past 3 months, Swee certainly deserves the title of the 2007 AAA champion! We are very proud of her success after many years of uneven performances. Melita Hadzagic and Zita Matay-Zambo both lost to the silver medalist Malinka Hoppe from Collège Régina-Assumpta, thus finishing 3rd and 8th respectively among 13 participants. It was the first medal for Melita, bronze to start with. Way to go, Melita! Zita's debut in the AAA circuit was very promising as well: we have reasons to hope for a solid WF team in the near future.

ME: Jean-Claude Beaudoin and Alexei Perepelkine ranked in the top 16 and top 32 respectively (out of 45), both falling against the same mysterious opponent, Nicholas Tatrallyay from McGill.

MF: Benjamin Justus finished 9th (out of 28).
