Wales had it's most successful Senior Commonwealth Championships in many years by bringing home 5 medals, to be placed 4th in the overall medal table.

  • Gold for Katherine Kempe in the Women's Sabre;
  • Silver for Mark Burkhalter in the Men's Epee;
  • Bronze for Tom Edwards in the Men's Epee;
  • Silver for the Men's Epee team;
  • Bronze for the Women's Sabre team

Overall, a fabulous set of results, with many other notable results throughout the week.  A more detailed report will be put online, once we have all recovered!

Carl added the following:

"I believe the Commonwealths (even without women's foil!) were Wales' most successful ever- well, in 64 years of Commonwealth competition - in terms of medals, even including the Commonwealth Games years. KK'S gold is only Wales' 3rd ever (1 in 2010, 1 in 2006) and it's only the 2nd time Wales have won 5 medals, the other being 1998."

Thanks, Carl.
