GB Wheelchair Fencers Dimitri Coutya and Piers Gilliver excelled at the World Championships in Rome in November 2017.

Dimitri Coutya made history for Great Britain by winning both the Category B Foil and Epee titles and becoming a Double World Champion! Amazing work Dimitri! 
 Dimitri defeated Ukrainian, Datsko in the final of the Foil, and Sarri of Italy in the Epee. Piers Gilliver took Category A Epee Silver and Sabre Bronze, a great result! Piers’s sabre result was a real bonus as he switched weapons from foil this year, and beat the world number 1, Andryi Demchuk of Ukraine to make the semi-finals. Dimitri and Piers made sure that Great Britain were on the podium in all four events – great work !
