Fencing Outdoors in Fort Ticonderoga

It looks like joining the "veterans" league this month gave Alain Lefebvre new wings. Last Sunday, May 29th, he was the one to represent Canada at the annual outdoors epee challenge in Fort Ticonderoga (New York), on the beautiful Lake Champlain. Despite moody weather and a rain date, which the tournament managed to avoid for so many years, 32 fencers came to cross blades in this historical site. And Alain took the honours winning a gold medal and a trophy in a tight 15-14 bout against Chris Young from VFA, best favourite after the pools. Bravo Alain! Keeping up with EMR's high standards: the gold was once already ours with Ilya Krouglikov winning the challenge in 2008.

Complete results on FRED.
