Over the weekend, Senior Men’s Foil and Junior Men’s Epee athletes were in action in Bonn, Germany and Riga, Latvia. In total, 18 Canadian athletes competed at their respective World Cup’s.

The Junior Men’s Epee team, comprised of Fynn Fafard (British Columbia, DYN), Seraphim Hsieh Jarov (British Columbia, DYN), Mateo Kadyszewski (Quebec, OM), and Ted Vinnitchouk (Ontario, TFC) came 9th at the World Cup. They beat the Japanese team in the 32’s, 45-42, but unfortunately fell in the 16’s to Italy with a close bout of 36-34.
