The 2011 US Wheelchair Fencing National Championship occurred in Portland, Oregon in mid-April. For the second year in a row our own Cat Bouwkamp swept the Gold in Women’s epee and foil. In early April, at the IWAS World Cup competition in Malaga, Spain, Cat had a rare off day in foil at the World Cup, but still placed 10th out of 23 athletes in epee. She also beat French Fencer Delphine Bernard, ranked 8th in the world in 2010, in the pool bout.
In March she competed at the US Fencing North American Cup in Detroit. There she won two gold medals. As reported in an online fencing report: “Bouwkamp’s experience as an able-bodied fencer helped her earn quick success on the international wheelchair scene where she won World Cup bronzes in saber and epee in 2010. “The national wheelchair coach approached me once when I was fencing an able-bodied competition and basically just said that my disabilities would allow me to compete in wheelchair fencing if I ever wanted to try it and so I thought it would give me a leg up and would be an interesting thing to try and so now here I am,” she said.
Now Cat is one of the top candidates to qualify to represent Team USA at the 2012 Paralympic Games!
