Anna and Magda shine at Junior Olympics

OFA’s girls made a strong showing at the 2019 Junior Olympics in Denver, with Anna Li earning a fifth place medal in Cadet and earning her A2019, while Magda Skarbonkiewicz fenced well beyond her years in Junior, earning top 16. Magda led seven OFA fencers into the top 64 in Juniors, followed by Nina Hunter (29), Anna Li (31), Neve Harrison (40), Siobhan Sullivan (44), Vivian Lu (50) and Zoe Turner (58).

Five other OFA fencers joined Anna Li among the top 64 in Cadet, with Neve and Vivian tying for 22, Nina 26, Siobhan 43 and Sophia Cheema 61.

The boys had a tougher go of it, with only Brandon Chang (46) making the top 64 in Juniors. In Cadet, Sean Kim was 31, Peter Barnett 51 and Brandon 60th.

Congratulations to all of our fencers for their dedication to hard work and discipline and thank you to coaches and parents for your support.
