Fencer Luke Mason has qualified for the British Youth Championships in May.
TWELVE-year-old fencer Luke Mason took second place at the South West Under-14 qualifying foil event.
The Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College student went up an age category to the under-14s. This did not deter Luke, as he won two pools and beat every opponent in the DE (direct elimination) to reach the final.
Luke demonstrated some outstanding fencing using fast footwork to his advantage, along with great timing, but unfortunately lost to an older adversary for the runners-up spot.
The result ensures that Luke can enter the British Youth Championships held in Sheffield in May. He will compete in the foil and epee categories.
