Sameer Sunder-Rajan took gold in cadet men’s epee at the EFC Klagenfurt tournament in Austria on the 29th October 2023.
Sameer said: “Today was incredibly challenging with all the fencers delivering outstanding performances, which made the day particularly demanding. I am genuinely delighted with my performance today and eagerly anticipate the upcoming season.”
“I extend heartfelt gratitude to my coach, Richard Lloyd-Jones, and all the dedicated GB fencers who stayed to support me, providing the essential encouragement and assistance. I am proud to be a part of such a supportive team.”
