Today in Mens Epee, Geoffrey Corcoran from Enniskerry fought a valiant fight in a tough pool to get 1 victory against the World No. 43 seed Omer Oztunc from Turkey. The other fencers in his pool were Berta HUN, Melocchi ITA, Vaulin UKR, Stymne SWE and Minkevicius LTU. Geoffrey’s final result was 80th out of a total of 89. This has been an invaluable experience and, together with the FIE pre-World Championships Training Camp which he will attend , should prepare him well for the Junior World Championships next month in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
