Ben is one of the country’s leading fencers, and he represents Great Britain on the Senior Men’s Foil Squad. He is looking forward to representing GBR at the upcoming European Championships in Novi Sad in Serbia, after a busy 2017-2018 season.
Ben travelled to Rio in 2016 as part of the Olympic Squad, and has had many accomplishments, with a silver medal at the British National Championships in April 2016, after taking a gold medal in the Men’s Foil Team Event at the European Games in Baku in June 2015.
In 2014, Ben captained the England Men’s Foil Team to a top podium position in the Men’s Team Foil at the Commonwealth Fencing Championships in Largs Scotland.
Ben is a Level 2 qualified coach and coaches at Fencers Club London’s Tuesday Night sessions, when he is not competing himself.
Ben says “In my coaching, I am passing on every technique I have learned in the salle, every tactic I have tried on the piste and every great feeling that I have experienced in competition. To see the young fencer taking all those lessons on board is a terrific reward.”
