Fencer Sophia proves she can compete with the blokes

Wellington East Girls College student Sophia Tweddle has achieved a unique double at the NZ Cadet Fencing Championships in Wellington. The year 12 student followed up her third-equal placing in the cadet women’s epee event with third-equal in the cadet men’s epee event the next day. In this fencing competition the losing semi-finalists do not compete for a bronze medal and are each awarded

one instead. To provide additional competition in preparation for the forthcoming Commonwealth Cadet and Junior Fencing Championships in July, Fencing NZ allowed women to compete in the equivalent male events. Sophia took on the challenge and was ranked eighth after the pool round where she defeated three of her five male opponents. After a bye in the round of 32 she defeated Amy Smith,

the ninth seed who had won the Cadet Women’s Epee title the previous day. She then eliminated the top seed, Cameron Fish, in their quarter-final bout and secured third-equal after losing her semi-final 13-15 to the eventual silver medallist. Next up are a series of open competitions, including the Central Region Championships in May followed by the North Island Championships on Queens Birthday weekend.
