Time for the review of this year’s last tournament of the NHFL (Nordic Historical Fencing League) – Sweden Open 2017!
Congratulations to the winners of the Longsword Tournament: Dennis Ljungqvist (KuHFS, Sweden) who took gold and become the overall winner of the NHFL 2017 season, Magnus Lundborg (UHFS, Sweden) took silver and Jesper Christiansen (Örebro HEMA, Sweden) who took bronze medal. In the women division Sara Vertanen (EHMS , Finland) has won the gold over a fantastic match with Julia Yli-Hukka (GHFS, Sweden) who took silver. Sara also has become the overall League champion of 2017.
Also, there came an announcement that this will be the last league sesion for the NHFL for now at least as its organizers need some time for other projects so there will be no NHFL next year. In a summary i have to say that because of the NHFL the overall skill level of its participants have skyrocketed over the last 3 years. All finalists are now mature, excellent fighters who are formidable opponents to anyone really. That was the goal of the league and it has exceeded everyone’s expectations! I really do expect our own Irish Historical Fencing League (IHFL) to achieve the same!
