Four of the world’s best athletes have been chosen for the Team GB Fencing Squad for Rio 2016. The British Olympic Association (BOA) announced four of the best that will head to Brazil this summer.
James Davis, Laurence Halsted and Richard Kruse will compete in the individual and men’s team foil events – with Marcus Mepstead named as the team reserve.
Team GB have nine medals at Olympic level since the first Games in 1896. The only gold medal was won by Gillian Sheen in the individual foil in Melbourne 1956.
