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.
