A big congratulations to Paul Lowen, who has qualified for the Veteran Fencing World Championships by finishing 5th and the highest in his age group at the British Fencing Veteran National Championships this weekend.
A bit of background on the age groups
The age groups are:
– Category 1: 40+
– Category 2: 50+
– Category 3: 60+
– Category 4:70+
– Category 5:80+
At the nationals, all age groups are mixed and the top fencer in each age group is awarded a place on the team for the Veteran Fencing World Championships. The rest of the team for each age group team is determined at the qualifiers held later in the year.
