GB U20 No 1 and Junior Commonwealth Gold Medallist, Kamal Minott, set a personal best when he helped GB take 4th place in the Team Event, at the Junior European Championships, held in Bulgaria.
The GB boys just missed out on a bronze medal, losing to a very strong Polish Team. “Kamal played a major part in GB’s result, as the anchor man in the Team. This is great preparation for the Junior Worlds taking place in Bulgaria later this month”, said Head Coach, Pierre Harper.
“This is the fourth time that a Newham Swords fencer has made the last four of a team event, at a European or World Championships. Alex Savin and Kristjan Archer took a silver medal at the 2010 Cadet European Championships; Kristjan Archer and Amol Rattan both took bronze at the 2013 European Championships, and Rajan Rai and Jai Birch both took a bronze at last year’s Junior World Championships (never before done)”, added Swords Manager, Linda Strachan.
