Olympia’s 14 years old, Emily Vermeule, has won the Junior (U20) Women’s Epee competition, at the Fencers Club, in NY, this past weekend.
Having been an A1 event, she earned her A rating, making her the youngest A rated fencer in the New England Division and one of the youngest in the country!
Emily is training with coach Daniel Hondor since 2012, her best results including 35th out of 261 Cadet women fencers, at the 2016 World Cup, this January in Bratislava, Slovakia, 45th at the Cadet Circuit in Copenhagen, Denmark, December 2015 and 49th at the Cadet Circuit in Klagenfurt, Austria, November 2015.
As it can be noticed, her results go up as she progresses with her fencing training and we’re looking forward to watch her in the future tournaments!
Earlier this month, foilist Allan Ding won the Bronze medal at the RJCC in New Jersey and earned his A rating, becoming the youngest A rated male foil fencer in New England!
Congratulations to both fencers and their coaches: Daniel Hondor (epee) and Shuang Meng and Kai Zhao (foil)!!
