The London 2012 Olympic Games are only two weeks away and athletes are now tapering for performance. This is the most precise and important time of the four-year (/lifetime) preparation where every second counts. I have been very fortunate over the past couple of years to work in fencing with outstanding athletes and importantly, coaches. The hard-work of everyone has paid off with 3 of the fencers at Truro Fencing Club being selected to compete in the Individual events at the Olympics.
James Honeybone commented: I know I can achieve a medal place otherwise I wouldn’t be here. I have beaten guys in the top 10 in the world this season, and know if I fence my best, there is no one I can’t beat.
You can watch the Olympic Sabre Fencing with James competing on 29th July and the Womens Sabre on the 1st August. It’s not about luck, it’s about preparation.
