Emily Vermeule, 5th  in Junior Women’s Epee, at the Toruń World Championships!!
Olympia's Emily Vermeule is number one Junior in the US and one of the four epee fencers in the US Women's Epee Junior Team, alongside Greta Candreva (NY) Lola Constantino (NJ) and Karolina Nixon (LA). Emily and Coach Daniel Hondor will be in Torun Poland until the end of this week.
At only 17 years old, Emily is one of the youngest ever to score all these amazing accomplishments, including the World Silver medalist title, last year in Verona, Italy!! Emily will fence in the individual event this Friday, April 12 and, respectively, teams, on Sunday.

At the same time, we’d like to wish good luck to our foil friend and camp-mate, May Tieu, from Premier Fencing Club, and to her coach Tamer Tahoun, in this important competition!
May made the US Women’s Foil Team, alongside Sylvie Binder, Lauren Scruggs and Delphine Devore.

Congratulations and good luck!
