Young fencers from different nationalities gathered from 10 to 11 February 2018 to take part in the Modern Fencing Minime International 2018 competition at the Temasek Club. Competitors as young as 10 years of age competed in three fencing categories: foil, epee and sabre.

 

The event not only provided an excellent opportunitiy for the next generation of fencers to familiarise with being up close and personal with a real competing opponent, but also gave local younger fencers the chance to interact with their overeseas counterparts.

 

Here are the highlights for the Modern Fencing Minime International 2018 competition:
