The Club Foil competition has been hotly contested over the last two weeks, culminating in last night’s exciting finals which saw Jenny Morris emerge as the worthy victor of this year’s event.
The semi-finals saw erstwhile downhill skier and rainbow watcher Andy Southwell crash out along with Nick Avis, leaving the final to be fought out between Veteran veteran Jenny Morris and the freshly shorn Chris Bishop. Maybe Chris was suffering from the Samson effect, or maybe Jenny was on fire, but whatever the cause, the result was that Jenny triumphed over Chris, taking the title of Best Foilist in Portsmouth & Southsea for the 2012-2013 season.
Unfortunately, David Bailey was unavailable to take photos of the medallists, so the photo attached to this article is an old one of Jenny looking radiant in a Dior ensemble at one of the many functions she attends. Alongside Jenny is her husband Carl – the much vaunted fencing president whose skills are in hot demand from the Midlands Veterans Ladies Sabre team.
