Natalia to fence at London 2012
University of Bath graduate Natalia Sheppard has been selected to represent Great Britain in fencing at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Natalia graduated from the University of Bath with a BSc (Hons) degree in Mathematics and Computing in 2006.
Born in Poland, she is now 28 and makes her Olympic debut at the London 2012 Games.
Natalia said: “I am so thrilled and proud at my selection for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
“This has only been made possible with the support of my coach Maciej Wojtkowiak and the strong back up team that now exists. Since the appointment of Alex Newton as Performance Manager women’s foil squad has gone from strength to strength enabling us to outperform our world ranking, as we have continued defeating world top 8 ranked teams.
“Qualification is only the start of what we are aiming to achieve this summer and we look forward to showing the rest of the world just how far we have come.”
