Pollitt poules no punches winning coveted U14 title
good-spirited match, despite Gray’s clear skill, Rhys Pollitt showed dominance to finish on top 15-10 and secure the gold medal.
Rhys Pollitt puts his success down to top quality club coaching at Fencers Club London, as well as extra gym training at school, with the support of the PE department and the GLL Sports Foundation.
He said: “With all the first-class support and encouragement I get from my coaches and my school, I can consistently aim to achieve good results.”
Despite having only turned 13 last week, Rhys Pollitt tops the U15 Boys Foil England Rankings table, a position that regularly sees him gain selection for foreign events.
The Valerie Degorce trophy was an integral aspect of his competition plan, forming part of a new U14 European Circuit. Next, he will travel to Poland to compete at the Challenge Wratislavia, then back to the UK for the British Youth Championships.
