Mayle finishes eighth in Split
Rebecca Mayle was one of four British fencers to head to this women’s epee satellite event in Croatia. With a field of just 24 Mayle was ranked 18th after the poule stage but she beat her opponent in the incomplete round of 32. This meant that she faced the number two seed, Jeza (SLO), in the round of 16. A tight fight followed but Mayle came through 12-11. Her day ended in the quarter final against Zavoda (HUN) who progressed 15-11. Kirschen (GER) won the event beating Mihaly (HUN) 15-9 in the final with the bronze medals going to Klafstad (NOR) and Zavoda (HUN).
GB Individual Placings: Mayle 8th, Smith 10th, Denham 19th & Shearman 24th.
