We have added to our ever growing group of GB and England internationals with four of our younger fencers recently selected to fence for the England U15 Team.
Benjamin Urdzal (in his first international), Darica Au (GB U17 International),
Emilija Lukaite (GB U17 International) and Alice Campbell (currently ranked number four in the GB U17 Rankings) will all travel to Paris to compete in the U15 World Cup, taking place later in Feb 15.
This selection means that Newham Swords now has a total of sixteen fencers selected for GB (at u17, U20 and Senior level), and eight fencers selected for England (at U15 and Senior level.
“We are extremely proud of the fact that over the last ten years, we have helped a total of 24 fencers achieve their dream by representing England and GB at various internationals around the World. Our next goal is to get one of these fencers to an Olympic Games, as my coach did for me”, said Club Manager and Olympian, Linda Strachan.
