Oliver is a Fencing Ace!
Many congratulations to keen fencer Oliver Strange who was selected for England Fencing in the Youth Five Nations competition in Dublin where, despite being the youngest member of the team, he won silver in the Men’s Foil individual event. Finishing the highest placed individual foilist of England’s men, Oliver then went on to help England get the gold in the men’s foil team event and so ensure an England win overall.
Building on this success Oliver went on to represent Maccabi GB in the 15th European Maccabi Games in Budapest. With over 3,000 athletes from over 40 countries participating in 21 sports Oliver stormed through the individual and team fencing events to bring home a haul of fencing medals - 3 golds, 1 silver and 1 bronze. Oliver was then invited to attend a reception at the British Embassy in Budapest, where he met the British Ambassador, Ian Lindsay OBE, to celebrate Maccabi GB’s success at the games.
