Heloïse Hardie followed up her bronze at the recent British Senior Fencing Championships to secure the British Under-18 Foil Champion title at the weekend.

The British Youth Championships were held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, over three days. The competition is for fencers in the three weapons - foil, epee and sabre - who have previously qualified in regional competitions. On Saturday, Hardie was representing the Southern Region and she won the competition, beating a London region fencer 15-11 in the final to become the champion.

That capped a great week for the former BGN student.
