Alumni News: Fencing Silver for William

Earlier this year William Lauga, a 2021 Heritage Leaver, was selected to compete in the Cadet (under-17)  squads for the Commonwealth Fencing Championships 2022, which was held in London this past August. William, who currently trains with the London-based Newham Swords Fencing Club and previously with local club Cambridge Sword, took silver for England in the Cadet Junior Men’s Foil Team and 11th in the under-17 individual competition during the event. William, who began fencing at age 8, says ‘I have always been a fan of individual sports since its only up to you to win (and lose), but the main reason I like fencing is for the competitive side.  By nature I am very competitive so I love regularly being able to compete nationally and internationally.’
