The Great Britain (GBR) Fencing Team selected for the forthcoming World Championships is based on the recently announced new World Class Performance programme and also the lessons of the recent European Championships hosted by British Fencing (BF) in Sheffield.
 
The Team proposed by the Performance Manager, after consultation with the Performance Management Group, was agreed by the International Committee as per the agreed selection document.

Alex Newton said today: “It is important that after the Europeans we challenge the programme and make a step change in culture and standards. This will not only help us to achieve our Gold target in 2012 but cement a performance pathway for the future.”
 
British Fencing CEO Piers Martin added: “This GBR team sets the tone for the future by raising the bar and solidifying the focus on gold medals which is key to our 3G Strategy”.
 
The GBR team is supported by UK Sport and Beazley.
