Well done to Newham Swords fencer, and the current Cadet GB Number 1, Teagan Williams-Stewart,  who (at just 15 years of age) got GB’s top result by coming 43rd out of 133 fencers at the Eden Junior World Cup. Well done also to Head Coach, Pierre Harper, who supported Teagan throughout the competition.
