Fencers go for Commonwealth Gold

The University of Edinburgh Sport is pleased to report gold medal success for our fencers at the 2018 Commonwealth Fencing Championships in Canberra.

University fencers Chloe Dickson and Katie Smith faced each other in the semi finals, with Chloe emerging as the winner and going on to take gold in the final. Katie also earned a well-deserved bronze.

The two joined forces the next day as part of the Scotland Team to take Team Gold over the likes of England and Australia.

The University was also pleased to see alumna and former University Women's Captain Zoe Sudderick come home with a Team Silver.
