OLYMPIC fencer James Beever has a rich pedigree in the sport. He competed at the Sydney games in 2000. Indeed, his father also fenced in the Montreal Olympics in 1976.
So, James was the ideal man to visit the students at St Clere’s to teach them about the basics of fencing. Of course these were no ordinary students, these were the members of the gifted and talented pool who had taken time out of their half term to see how fencing could help them with their own sport.
YT interviewed James to assess how the students were getting on and the condition of British fencing just a year away from the London Olympics.
