  • Jujie Luan Wins Silver and Gold

    Edmonton Fencing Club's own Jujie Luan returned to the world fencing stage with silver and gold medal wins in women’s epee and women’s foil 60+, respectively, at the 2018 Veteran World Fencing Championships in Livorno, Italy.

    Early in the week, Luan reached the finals in women’s epee with four wins and one loss in poules. She then defeated Corinne Aubally from France in the 32’s by a score of 10-5.  She won a nail biter in the 16’s by defeating Caroline Rich from the USA 10-9 to advance to the quarter-finals.  There Luan had another tough opponent, number one seed Astrid Kircheis from Germany, and came away with the victory in a score of 10-7.  Luan defeated Adriana Albini from Italy 10-4 in the semi -finals but lost her final to Elizabeth Koceb from the USA 9-4 in the final to take the silver medal in women’s epee.

    In women’s foil 60+, Luan was undefeated in poules and then defeated Christa Zymanski from Germany 3-2 in the 32’s.  She then went on to defeat Germany’s Karin Jansen, 10-7 and Kaoru Amari of Japan, 10-1 to advance to the semi-finals.  Luan continued her unbeaten streak with an 8-4 win against Sheila Anderson of Great Britain and then took gold after defeating Ludmila Chernova from Russia in the final by a score of 3-2.

    “I am very happy to win the 2018 World Championships on the 10th Anniversary of my gold medal win in 2008 (Limoges, France) representing Canada,” Said Luan after the gold medal win.  “It took all of my experience to be victorious because I was so tired after taking the Silver medal in Epee. Now I have to rest because tomorrow I fence with Team Canada in the Woman’s Foil team event and the next day I will fence sabre.”

    Jujie placed 8th in sabre, a weapon she has never competitively fenced before. 

    Many congratulations to Jujie for her victories!
