Scots ExCel in GB Teams!

Scottish fencers were put through their paces at the Men's Foil Team Invitational Olympic Test Event at the ExCel Arena on 27 Nov. 

Richard Kruse and Ed Jefferies both fenced superbly as part of the Gold medal winning GB A Team and put down a solid marker as preparations for 2012 enter the home straight. 

The GB A Team saw off full-strength outfits from China, France and Russia to take a thoroughly deserved and remarkable win.  Meanwhile, Keith Cook, as a member of the GB B Team, fenced brilliantly as his team saw off the Italians in the Last 8, before narrowly losing to Russia in the semi-finals. 

With 3 Scots out of 8 fencers in the 2 teams, Scottish Fencing is extremely proud that our fencers made such a decisive contribution to these results.  Well done!  We'd also like to wish all our fencers the very best of luck as they enter the last few months of the qualifying period for 2012.
