The European Junior Championships started today, with Men’s Foil as the first event of the tournament. Phillip Cripwell was selected for Ireland.
In the pool, Cripwell beat the higher-seeded Materne BEL and Rai GBR finishing V2D4. Despite seeding 64th, he unfortunately missed the cut by a single point and did not qualify for the DEs.
The championships continue tomorrow in Men’s Épée and Women’s Foil.
