London 2012: Truro fencers dominate GB Olympic team

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.
