West-Rock Fencer Sylvie Binder Claims World title

Armonk native and Fencing Academy of Westchester member Sylvie Binder was just crowned World Champion in Cadet Women’s Foil!

Sylvie went undefeated in pools and was dominate through-out the day, winning her direct eliminate bouts 15-8, 15-3, and 15-6, before making it to the semi-finals. In the top four, she defeated Lara Bertola (ITA) 15-3 in three periods to advance to the gold medal bout, where she triumphed over Sera Azuma (JPN) 15-12 for the gold.

Way to go Sylvie!

This is Sylvie’s second Cadet World Championships. Last year, she finished with a bronze medal.

Sylvie will resume competition in Bourges, FRA tomorrow with the Cadet Team Event. She will also be representing West-Rock and the USA in the Junior (U20) Women’s Foil.

Keep bringing home the hardware, Champ!

    I know I speak for both of us, when I say how grateful we are for West-Rock’s support of Sylvie’s fencing goals. Thank you to the best division in the USA!!! Jeff Binder
