Winner: Performance Coach of the Year


Dan Kellner 

Nominated by Marcus Mepstead, he commented how Dan has “helped me really understand the sport, allowed me to play the game rather than just participate and given me a lot of confidence in how good I am and how good I can be. I work endlessly to get every bit of  knowledge I can out of him because I know when I use it all, I have a real chance of being an Olympic Champion.”


Winner: Development Coach of the Year


Chris Howser 

In Chris’s nomination he was commended for his “absolute enthusiasm, professionalism, and dedication to the sport of fencing, from the youngest to the eldest, and everyone in between.”

Paul Davis 

Paul was commended for his vision of the sport and the role it can play in having “a positive impact on the individuals and community around them beyond just taking part”.
