NEWHAM SWORDS made it a hat-trick of gold medals when under-14 England international Ife Kubler captured first place at the Bristol Premier Series Junior Event, held at the weekend.

This follows the gold medals won by club team-mates, Rajan Rai, who took gold in the under-13 boys at the Eton National Junior Event held two weeks ago, and Kamal Minnott who captured gold in the under-13 boys at the London Academy Youth Cup, held last weekend.

"These are a great set of results for these young and talented fencers, and good preparation for next month's London Youth Games, where we will be defending champions," said Swords manager, Linda Strachan.

Other outstanding results at the Bristol Premier Series Event came from 10-year-old Rachel Shaw, who took silver in the under-11 girls after losing on the last hit, and eleven-year old Alan Lozovik, who took bronze in the under-14 boys category.
