Historical Funding








Fencing has been contested at every Summer Olympic Games since the birth of the modern Games in Athens 1896. However, it wasn’t until 1924 that the women's foil made its Olympic debut in Paris.


There are three disciplines; foil, epee and sabre. Italy and France historically have dominated the podium in this sport, but Britain have emerged as a major force in recent years.


British foil fencer Richard Kruse became Britain's first-ever world number one after claiming gold at the World Cup in Japan in 2019 whilst Marcus Mepstead claimed silver at the World Championships in the men’s foil in the summer of 2019 – these two are ones to watch this summer!
