With a 9:00 start, the Men’s Foil is on its way.

The 30 entrants split into five pools, I am in pool 2 which is a pool of 6.  I win 2 of the 5 fights and I am ranked 18 out of 30.

In the DE I will be fencing the number 15 seed for place in the last 16.

I win my first DE against Christ Busuttil of MLT 15-8, so now I  have to fence the number 2 seed Nick Woollard of GBR.  I lose 6-15.

My final ranking is 16th out of 30.

Now for the Team Foil. I am teamed up with Gino Lucrezi, Greta Tamošiunaite and Mélanie Rabier-Gotchall. We are Team International.

Ten teams start the competition and in the first round we get a bye. In the 2nd round we fight off against Malta, we win 27-20.

In the Semi-Finals we fight off against Scotland but we lose, so Team International win a Bronze Medal.
