Congratulations to our 5 athletes who competed in the Klagenfurt Cadet European Cup in Austria. We are very proud of how well they represented the USA and NYFA!

Men’s Epee Individuals (239 fencers):

  • Alan Temiryaev – Bronze.  Alan’s first world event!
  • Nathan Vaysberg – 33rd.  Nathan’s first world also.
  • Anton Chmut – 37th.  Both Nathan and Anton went undefeated in pools and were 1 step away from Top 32.
  • Bennett Cohen – 156th.  We know Bennett definitely has it in him to do better next time!

Men’s Epee Team (40 teams):

  • Anton Chmut, Alan Temiryaev – Bronze
  • Nathan Vaysberg – 4th.  Both Alan and Nathan were anchors and did great jobs for their teams.

Women’s Epee Individual (213 fencers):

  • Jaclyn Khrol – 163rd.  At just 13, Jackie is our youngest fencer to make the traveling team. This was her first world event and there’s surely much more to come from Jackie in the next 4 years in Cadets.

Let’s wish the best of luck to Anton, Nathan, Alan, Bennett and Anna Lanzman at the next world event in France in November!

Congratulations also to our medalists at the Ben Gutenberg Memorial SYC:

  • Nadia Gaberkorn – Silver in Y14 and Bronze in Y12
  • Jack Kambeseles – 8th in Y14
