After three days of training at the LP Centre over
half-term, India George competed in the girls’ under 11 foil. India was
ranked 9th out of 11 after the only poule, with 1 victory recorded. She
then won her Last 16 Direct Elimination bout against a more experienced fencer.
Her second DE she was up against the leader of the poules who, on the day, was
unable to cope with India's left handedness and that was an easy victory too.
India then met an experienced fencer from our neighbouring club Salle

India’s mum said, ‘I think we had an element of luck and things

good luck with the rest of your LPJS season!
