In July 2018 GB sent fencers to Warsaw for the Senior World Cup, and the Junior World Championships. It was a successful campaign with Dimitri Coutya picking up 2 gold medals in Cat B Epee and Foil, and Piers Gilliver collecting gold in Cat A Epee and bronze in Sabre. The men’s foil team of Piers, Dimitri, Josh Waddell and Ollie Lam-Watson took the silver medal, the first team medal in foil since Adam was a lad.
There were also some good performances by the other fencers. Most notably Shah Rashid was placed 5th in the Cat B Sabre.
In the Junior World Championships Josh Waddell won a silver medal in the mixed nations epee team event.
