Veterans’ West Midlands Open

The ever popular West Midlands Open attracted  a strong entry from Veterans around the country including  our own Caryl Oliver, Adrian Griffin and Malcolm Allton.

Adrian fenced his newest weapon, Sabre and fenced well in a strong field.  He came 8th, losing  his D/E bout to the eventual bronze medallist. 

In the Men’s Epee, Malcolm fenced well in the pools to earn 8th seed position.  He ended up in  13th position having also come up against an eventual bronze  medallist in the D/E.

In the Women’s Epee, Caryl fenced well in the pools and earned No 1 seeding going into the D/E  where she moved through to the final comfortably but not  easily!  The only bout she lost for the whole day was  in the final against Marg Oniye and so came home with a  silver medal.
