Singapore clinch women's gold at GLL Camden International event

National cadet fencers Nicole Goh, Nicole Wee and Lee Kar Moon captured the women's team gold on Sunday at the GLL Camden International Cadet Sabre Tournament in London.

The trio defeated Belgium (Jolien and Saartje Corteyn, Nan van Rijckeghem) in the final 45-35 and emerge triumphant among the 14 Under-17 participating teams.

In April, Lau Ywen won Singapore's first fencing title on the world stage at the Fencing Cadet and Junior World Championships in Bourges, France.

The 16-year-old then added a gold and silver at the Hungary and France legs of the European Cadet Circuit last month.
