GB's Foil Team Finish Rio in 6th

Great Britain’s Men’s Foil Team - including ZFW's Richard Kruse and James-Andrew Davis - finished sixth at the Rio Olympic Games, after losing 45-43 to Russia in the quarter final.​

The team, which also included Laurence Halsted and Marcus Mepstead (reserve), then went on to the placings matches, where they beat Egypt 45-35 before losing 45-38 to China, finishing sixth overall.

British Fencing’s Performance Director, Alex Newton, said; "The boys fenced brilliantly against Russia but unfortunately some key decisions by the referee meant an uphill battle to win the fight." ​

Russia went on to beat France in the final to take Gold by 45-41. The USA took Bronze by beating London 2012 champions Italy 45-31.
