Commonwealth Vets Champs 2014

17th December 2014
On the weekend of November 16th, Nickola Beck and Malc Cawton flew to Largs in Glasgow to fence at the Commonwealth Veterans Championships 2014.

Representing England, Nickola fenced first on the Sunday in the Womens Sabre event. She won 11/12 pool fights, seeded 3rd after the pools earning her a bye into the L16. She won her next two DE rounds to fence Jane Hutchison in the semi final, where Jane won 10-4 (or 5!). Nickola picked up her first individual Commonwealth Bronze.

On the Monday Nickola was then selected to fence for England in the team event where the England Team went on to beat Scotland 45-28 in the final crowning them Womens Sabre Commonwealth Team Champions!

Also on the Monday Malc fenced in the Mens Sabre. Malc fenced well and won the over 70's individual gold, finishing 27/52 overall. Malc now has the set of Commonwealth, European and World Medals!
