Cusack gets Bronze in Fencing World Cup
(Aix-en-Provence, France - 19 February, 2011) Brendan Cusack, the Irish Open Champion, achieved a Bronze Medal at the Foil Fencing Junior World Cup in the south of France last weekend. Competitors from 27 countries took part in this final World Cup event of the season.
Cusack won nine bouts in all, including wins against opponents from Russia, France, Holland, Spain, Germany and Belarussia. After defeating world-ranked number 5 Kontochristopoulos of Greece in the round of eight, he was narrowly beaten in semi-final bout by Daniele Garozzo of Italy who went on to defeat his team-mate Lorenzo Nista in the final.
Cusack, 18, a member of the Irish National Team who lives and trains in the United States, has now improved his Junior World Ranking to 33 (from previous 73), going into the Junior World Championships in Jordan next month.
