This weekend in Chalons, France, Romain Cannone placed 3rd out of 171 athletes from 15 countries at his second European Cadet Circuit! Romain also fenced in the team event and helped France take 2nd place. He is now qualified to compete in two more Cadet Designated events in Bratislava, Slovakia in January and Gothenburg, Sweden in February. The European Cadet Circuit is the most prestigious International Cadet Competition and is on the qualification path towards fencing in the World Championships in April. Bravo, Romain!!
