Silver for Maia

Maia Fashokun achieved a silver medal at the National Cadet Ranking Tournament at Stratford at the weekend.

The competition, which took place in Stratford Upon Avon, was a national cadet ranking tournament so any points  gained go towards the U17 rankings. Maia is currently ranked 3rd nationally.

The first round was a poule round and Maia won all six of her fights. She then progressed through the next four rounds winning, 15-1, 15-7, 15-8 and 15-5. In the semi final she beat the GB number 4, Lizzie Moffat, 15-8. In the final she lost 15-13 to Sophia Potter ranked number 2.

It was a very long day and Maia fenced brilliantly whilst nursing a knee injury. She is looking forward to representing GB in the Meylan International in France on 17th – 18th October.
