Plymouth College fencers win British titles

British Youth Fencing Championships

TWO fencers from Plymouth College have won titles at the British Youth Fencing Championships.

Tia Simms-Lymn claimed the under-16 epeé crown, with Ben Andrews taking the top spot in the under-14 age group of the same discipline.

This is the fifth consecutive year that Simms-Lymn, who competed at the Youth Olympics, has taken her age group title.

Andrews has finished in at least the top three since 2013.

Held over three days at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, Josh Hellings and Kerenza Bryson both took bronze in the under-16 and under-18 epeé respectively.

“We have a strong record in the youth championships and I am delighted to see our fencers do so well again,” said director of modern pentathlon and fencing at the college, Andy Hill.

“With these results our modern pentathlon and fencing academy has reached the landmark of 50 national champions.”
