Four golds among another big medal haul for University of Bath-based wheelchair fencing stars at Warsaw World Cup
World Champion Dimitri Coutya led the way with a golden hat-trick as he enjoyed individual success in both the Category B epee and foil before joining forces with Piers Gilliver, Oliver Lam-Watson and Joshua Waddell to claim the men’s foil team title with a 45-37 victory over Italy.
Coutya was in dominant form in the individual events, winning 15-4 in the epee final against Iraq’s Amnar Ali before repeating that result in the foil final against Ukraine’s Oleg Naumenko.
Paralympic Champion Gilliver was also in fantastic form in the Category A epee competition, sealing his latest international gold medal with a 15-8 victory over France’s Luca Platania Parisi.
There were silver medals for Gemma Collis in the Category A sabre and epee, narrowly losing out 15-11 in both finals, while Paralympic medallist Lam-Watson and Shah Rashid won bronze in the Category A foil and Category B sabre respectively.
