More than 30 fencers from Canlas Fencing (CF) are set to compete against the best young talents in the region in the Singapore Minime Fencing Festival scheduled Sept. 2 to 4 at OCBC Arena in Kallang, Singapore.

Victoria Ebdane (14-under), Antonio Manuel (12-under), Jodie Tan (10-under) and Willa Galvez (10-under) will lead the CF delegation in the tournament.

Ebdane is fresh from an impressive campaign in the Southeast Asia Fencing Federation Minime last week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where she won gold medal in the foil U-12 category and silver medal in the foil U-14 division.

Manuel, on the other hand, earned a silver medal in the foil U-14, while Yohann Malik Roldan, who will also see action in Singapore, claimed a bronze medal in the foil U-12 event in Malaysia.

Tan pocketed the gold medal in the foil U-12 class during the One Canlas Fencing Competition early this month at SM City Sta. Mesa, where Galvez earned a bronze medal in the same category.

“Some of our fencers participating in Singapore have won medals in Malaysia, and hopefully we’ll be able to win some more in Singapore,” said Sally Aramburo, co-founder of Canlas Fencing with former national team mentor Rolando “Amat” Canlas Jr. “But more than the wins, the experience of competing again abroad is what we’re excited for our young fencers.”

Other PH entries

Also seeing action are Opao Catantan, Yuna Canlas, Jada and Jaden Divinagracia, Aliyah and Amber Diaz, and Christine Morales in girls foil; Clyde, Yllac and Wyatt Guinto, Lance and Kyle Dy, Gael Villaluna, Lucas Palafox, KD Castillo, Elijah Timbol, Miloy Estreta, Santi Mineses, Iñigo Divinagracia and Matteo Canlas in boys foil.
