Luke Mason, 16, from Weston College took part in a European cadet circuit fencing competition in December in Grenoble, France. He was up against some of the best cadets in the world.
Starting strong in the first round of pools he won four out of 6 bouts. The second round of pools was a lot harder winning 2, losing 3, these were literally by a point so could have gone either way.
Luke Mason 16' had an amazing weekend competing in the British Cadet and Junior championships in Nottingham.
Saturday was the cadet competition, he started well by winning 4 of his 5 pool matches, then winning all his direct elimination bouts to reach the final. This was a tense match with Luke down 3 points in the first minute, then a lot of doubles were scored, he got to the first break and had to change tactics.
