RIVINGTON Park Fencing Club are well known for nurturing the talents of young athletes but it was the seniors who took the headlines at the recent Hertfordshire Open.

John Simmons has also been selected for the Under-23 European Championships.

Club secretary Michael Ruaux said: “The Hertfordshire Open is one of the largest senior competitions bringing together some of the best in the country.

“Rob Veitch medalled in third and is starting to look relaxed.

“Rachel Lasance has been at the club for a long time but I would not call her a veteran.

“She might have thought about an 18th or 20th finish being good but she actually came fifth.

“She has been working with our coach Dmitri Lapkes and has improved tremendously.”
