Rory Wins in Barcelona
Rory McLellan has won the Trofeu Sant Jordi, one of the largest competitions on the u14 international circuit. On Saturday he was faultless with a 6-0 win-loss in the first round of poules and a 6-0 in the seeding round, meaning he went in to the direct elimination round on Sunday seeded no.2.
He got a bye in to the Last 32 round which he won with an impressive 15-6. His dominance continued into the semi final with wins of 15-11 and 15-9. However his semi final fight looked in jepordy as he went 6-8 down and took a blow to his fencing hand causing considerable pain and swelling. He opted to continue and won in courageous style as he did in the final, dominating in a 15-9 win.
