A LOCAL teenager has posted the latest in a long line of successes in the world of fencing.

Chloe Dixon took bronze in the Under-18 Women’s British Youth Foil Championships in Sheffield.

The following day, the Glenwood High pupil was the only Scot to win an event - the foil - at the Sainsbury’s School Games, held in the Olympic venues in London.

She prevented England from enjoying a ‘whitewash’ in the six team and same number of individual competitions.

Father Allan said: “Chloe is over the moon at being the champion.

“This month also saw her moving up to 11th in the Great Britain senior women’s foil rankings.”
