To earn gold, Romain beat the number one rated Cadet in the world, Adrian Dabija from Romania, by a score of 15-12. This result should secure his spot on the French National Team for World Championships in the Spring in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.  Meanwhile, we wish him the best of luck at the January North American Cup in Virginia, and at the Goteborg, Sweden World Cup in February.  Results: http://www.eurofencing.info/tournaments/details/slovakia-bratislava-2014
