Yes he did it! Our fabulous foil captain Richard Barnes-Webb, bagged gold at the South East England Foil Championships ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ, winning overall gold in mens foil as well as veterans mens champion. Richard started his career as a fencer at school in his native South Africa ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. Bored of cricket practice he began ‘stick sword fighting’ with a mate. He initially attended fencing club to get out of doing homework, but eventually reached county level, ultimately representing SA at multiple international events. All we can say is, cricketโ€™s loss is fencingโ€™s gain! Bravo ๐ŸŽ‰ Richard! We are super duper excited and proud! Thanks to Oksana Larsen for her magnificent coaching & Nick Payne for coaching Richard during the bouts!
