Ho Sana fencers clean up at national tourney

Ho Sana club members captured golds for all events at the 2014 National Fencing Championship, which concluded two days of swashbuckling action over weekend at the indoor hall of the Royal University of Phnom Penh.

Seventy-five fencers including 17 females participated in the second edition of the tournament, with Ho Sana’s Khim Saman triumphing in men’s individual epee, men’s individual foil and men’s team epee.

Clubmate Yi Liza won the women’s individual epee. Fencing Federation of Cambodia vice president Meas Sarin told the Post that they planned to organise another event, titled the Cambodian Fencing Cup, in December.

“The Federation also wants to host fencing competitions four times a year,” he added. Cambodian fencers are preparing to compete at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore. However, the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia has decided not to send any fencers to the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, in September and October.
