After the victory of the previous weekend at the Scaramouche challenge in Angers (in M13), Chloé Garzon confirmed herself on Saturday in Bourges.
In the morning she won in the U15s, where she was outclassed, among seven participants. “Sometimes it’s easier to win in the higher category because there’s less pressure,” temporised Marianne Jacquelin, fencing master at the Saint-Doulchard club.
However, his young protégé who started foiling at the age of 7 and is now twelve, was able to control his emotions during the afternoon. In the end: a second gold medal, in M13, where there were 12 shooters. “She’s a fighter, underlined her coach. In competition, she watches her opponent a lot. And above all she is always positive. »
The Dolciardian club was also able to count on Pierre Roguez to win another title, in M13, among the boys. The Garzon family also stood out in this category, thanks to the third place of their brother Maxence.
