Women's Foil Natalia Sheppard (Reserve Martina Emanuel)

Men's Sabre James Honeybone (Reseve Alex O'Connell)

Women's Sabre Louise Bond-Williams (Reserve Joanna Hutchison)

Men's Epee Jon Willis (Reserve Philip Marsh)

Women's Epee Corinna Lawrence (Reserve Georgina Usher)


Good luck to all 5, all of whom are good enough to qualify and land us an extra Olympics place.

As as aside:
Nothing too contraversial?
Does anyone think all of those will be offered a host nation place if they fail to qualify at the zonals?

Some yes, some no... some depending on performance at zonal.. About as ambiguous as I can get really...

RE: Your aside.

Hasn't GB already been allocated 8 places as a host nation?

Yes, but they are in addition to any fencers we qualify through the usual channels, and it's likely that we will prioritise those for team events.
