Canada Cup 2014/15


Daniel (seen here with coach Jon) finished a fine 27th in the Senior Foil competition after being knocked out in a close match with the Bronze medalist, 15-12. This is in a field of 54 of Canada's best fencers! He finished in 34th the previous day in Junior Foil. Not bad for a 14-year old!
