Commonwealth Silver for Glen

Commonwealth Silver for Glen

Following a tough day of fencing, Glen Ostacchini today won Commonwealth Silver in the Senior Commonwealth Fencing Championships, currently being held in London.

Winning 6 poule fights out of 7, Glen was ranked 12 going into the Direct Elimination.  This gave him a bye into the L32, where he defeated Robert CICCARELLI (CAN), 15:12. This took him into the L16, against Ben PEGGS (ENG), who he quickly despatched, 15:9.  Now in the L8, he met Jiaan LI (CAN).  Glen defeated Li 15:12, taking him into the semi-finals, and guaranteed him a medal.

In the L4, Glen came up against Keith COOK (SCO). winning 15:10, taking him into the Final.

In the other half of the draw a tight all-English semi-final saw Harry BIRD defeat Kamal MINOTT 15:14.

The final was a very tight fight, with the lead changing hands regularly, but with Harry eventually coming out as victor, 15:14. 

Well done, Glen.  Wales is proud of you!
