NYFA FENCERS EARN 3 MEDALS AT NORTH AMERICAN CUP


No Comments

Brooklyn’s New York Fencing Academy took home three medals from the North American Cup in Virginia Beach this past weekend.

NYFA was the only fencing club with two athletes making the top eight in the Y14 age group. Skyler Chin earned 5th place out of 107 fencers in the Y14 men’s epee. To attain this position he won all six bouts in his pool despite having missed the entire season due to injuries. The Cup was his first major tournament since the last Summer Nationals where he took 3rd place in Y14 and 2nd in Division 2.

Also competing in Y14, Romain Cannone made the top eight for the third time this fencing season. Although he had to face a stronger opponent due to losing two of the six bouts, Cannone still made 8th place out of 107 fencers.  After this tournament Romain is ranked #4 in USA in his age group.

In another age group, Y10, Brooklyn resident Alan Temiryaev took 8th place out of 29 fencers at his first national competition.   In addition, a good effort was put forth by Bennett Cohen who made top 32 in Y12 at his first North American Cup.

The North American Cup features competitors from the U.S. and countries around the world, making the competition tougher and stronger than regular tournaments. Held annually in April, the North American Cup is the most substantial tournament before the biggest tournament of the season, the Summer Nationals in July.

The New York Fencing Academy will continue to hone the skills of its members by hosting international fencers from Germany for the next two weeks.

NYFA PERFORMANCE AT NJFA’S 5TH ANNUAL DANNY BUKANTZ OPEN


We would like to share some impressive results that our fencers showed this weekend!

  • Gabriel Canaux had his best personal result this weekend at the NJFA 5th Annual Danny Bukantz Open. Even though Gabriel is still in Youth 14 age group, he competed in the adult tournament that had 86 competitors. Despite the fact that the tournament consisted of over 20 “A” fencers and the same amount of “B” fencers, Gabriel made his way all the way to the top claiming the Gold Medal and earning his “A 2011” rating.
  • Skyler Chin made NYFA proud as well by making top 16 at the same event. Skyler is only in the 13 year old age group, and we are happy he can compete on the adult level already. Congratulations to Skyler on his performance and on earning his “B 2011” rating.
