Epic Dulwich Ziemek Cup 2017

Published on 2017-04-21

Dulwich Fencing named their most recent competition after the UK national coach Ziemek Wojciechowski, who will arrive in Asia, for the second time, this May to visit Dulwich College Shanghai.

Over 160 registered fencers from across the Asian Olympic fencing zone, 16 International referees from 12 countries (including 7 World Cup and Grand Prix referees), and the events team used for world championships came to run the computer systems. The tournament ran from 14 - 16 April 2017 at Dulwich College Shanghai.

After three days of competition, where many Dulwich fencers really excelled in their performances both as individuals and in country teams:

Joseph took Gold in U11 boy’s foil category ahead of both the 2015 All China Champion and the current number 1 ranked Chinese fencer at U11.

Sophia took Silver and Natasha finished in Top 8 in U11 girl’s foil category and Serena finished in the top 8 of U14 Girls foil category.

Meanwhile, with great courage, Barron, Jessie, Jack and Jon also experienced final piste and international referees in demonstration events to show what they have learnt in the last few months. 

Parents volunteers, Year 9 students and Dulwich fencers from the Fencing Leadership Programme show great community support.

 In May, Dulwich Fencing will host Ziemek Camp and Andrea Baldini and Irem Karamete’s first camp in China!
