Kamal Minott at 2017 Senior World Championships

Well done to Newham Sword’s “Fencer of the Year”, Kamal Minott, for his efforts in the Men’s Individual Event at the 2017 Senior World Championships, held in Leipzig.

In his first appearance at a Senior Worlds (aged just 20), Kamal was able to win his first DE to get into the L128 before narrowly losing on the last hit (15-14!) to advance to the L64 of the Men’s Individual Event.

Kamal and Head Coach, Pierre Harper, will now prepare for the Team Event alongside GB fencers, James Davies, Marcus Mepstead and Ben Peggs.
