Newham Swords Fencer wins Sue Wojciechowska Award

Congratulations to Teagan Williams-Stewart for winning the annual Sue Wojciechowska nee Wrigglesworth Award. This is given to the most improved UK woman foilist.  Sue was the youngest woman GB foilist to compete in an Olympics (Munich) at the age of just 17. Sadly she passed away at an early age. The award was presented by Ziemek Wojciechowski in her memory.

This rounds off a year in which Teagan has won 2 Gold, 2 silver and a Bronze medal and being the youngest fencer to reach the top 8 of the Senior Women’s National foil competition by coming 6th and other notable achievements.

Congratulations also to Pierre Harper and Linda Strachan for their achievement in developing Teagan.
