#TuksFencing: Flying the SA flag high at the Junior African Championships in Lagos

Posted on March 14, 2018

Flying the SA flag high at the Junior African Championships in Lagos were the siblings Natania and Christiaan Bester

Natania and Christiaan Bester were the only TUKS Athletes to represent South Africa at the Junior African Fencing Championship held in Lagos Nigeria from 1 to 5 March.

Christiaan won a silver medal in the Cadet men’s Epee and a bronze medal in the Junior men’s Epee and then continue to claim another silver as part of the SA Junior men’s Epee team. 

Natania and her team mates won Bronze in the Junior Women’s Epee Team. 

We would like to wish Natania and Christiaan all the best when they next represent the SA Junior Fencing Team at the Junior World Championships in Verona (Italy) to be held from 1 - 9 April 2018. 

 

Christiaan: Silver in the Cadet Men's Epee Christiaan: Bronze Men's Junior Epee
   
Natania & Team mates: Bronze in Junior Women's Epee Christiaan & Team mates: Silver in Junior Men's Epee
