16 year old national youth fencer, Simon Lee, has clinched the silver medal in the cadet men's epee at the Asian Junior and Cadet Fencing Championship. The Championship is held in Amman, Jordan.

Simon was only ranked joint 30th seed in his category, but overcame three top 10 seeds to eventually lose in the final to Japanese Ryu Matsumoto, which is sadly not the first time Singapore fell to Japan in the month of February.

Simon had actually won the bronze medal in the same Championship last year, and he will still qualify for the age group for the next Championship next year. Chance for him to move on to the gold medal then?
