On 22nd January Daisy Barrow competed in the South West Fencing Championships in foil and came third meaning she has qualified for the British Youth Championships which will be held in Sheffield in May. She will be representing the South West area.
On Sunday 29th January she did it again in sabre, this time coming second, also qualifying for the British Youth Championships. She fenced incredibly well both days especially as she has moved up to the under 14s age group and most of the girls were up to 18 months older than her and several have been selected for the England team this year which Daisy missed out on by just one place. Daisy also managed to knock out last year’s South West sabre champion for the first time in a competition, putting her in 3rd place behind Daisy. Luckily they are good friends and club teammates so it is a friendly rivalry that they share. Well done Daisy and we are all wishing you the very best in your forthcoming competitions.
