In Dublin, while the Paris CEP was underway, (see separate story), Teagan Williams-Stewart and Georgia Silk took gold and bronze respectively in the Individual Event and also Team Gold at the Youth 5 Nations!
“What a great result for Teagan and Georgia who have also ended their season as the GB Cadets Number 1 and 2! “
Pierre and I are so proud of everyone and of what you achieved for Newham Swords over the weekend. Well done to you all!
Newham Swords made history on 26th January 2019 when Teagan Williams-Stewart, the current GB Cadet Number 1, gained a silver medal at the Rome U17 International.
This was not only a personal best for Williams-Stewart but also an historical result as no other U20 female foilist in the country has ever achieved this in the history of the sport.
“This is a monumental result for Teagan and the Club and well deserved given Teagan’s hard work over the last twelve months”, said Head Coach, Pierre Harper.
“This result comes at the end of an excellent cadet and junior season for Williams-Stewart who has not only won every single U17 and U20 British Ranking competition since September, but has also gained selection for every single U17 and U20 World Cup this season” added Club Manager, Linda Strachan.
Following her fantastic results this season, Williams-Stewart has now been selected for the Cadet and Junior World Championships which will take place in Poland next month.
Yet more GB selections for Newham Swords Fencing Club!
Well done to Teagan Williams-Stewart who has just been selected for the Junior European Championships! This now means that she will compete in both the Cadet and Junior Europeans alongside Newham Swords team-mate, Georgia Silk!
Well Done Teagan and Georgia! Pierre and I are so so proud of you both!!
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.
Teagan finished a great weekend for Newham Swords when reaching the L32 stage (achieved by only four Brits) of the London Senior Cup which took place the following day.
