    Hi people, I'm new here

    heya,

    well im not new to the forum but have been away for a good old while.

    currently training harder and more often as im aiming to be in the top 20 of womens foil by the end of the season (im currently 164

    after only 1 comp)
    due to funds i can only do domestics this year but aim to do as many internationals as i can afford next year, which will be heavily

    dependant on funding :/

    hope to see some of you on the open circuit etc

    all the best,
    Abby

    foil..

    Foil as in fencing?
    Not to many people have tried foil, epee, or sabre.
    Did my one semester foil in 1967, got 7th overall at the NorCalNovice meet at StanfordU out of over 400 first year fencers. Lost to the guy who won it, twice, my only losses.
    One issue I had was training without the sensor wires attached, then competing with the pull of around 10 lbs on my body, making me seemingly much slower to react forwards. Since as you know, forwards is attacking and scoring points, it's a major snafu by our maestro Markee of CityCollege of SanFrancisco.
    I beat his prized Olympic hopeful, a 3rd year fencer, two weeks after the tourney. I'm a lefty, played 3 years of high school football and basketball.
