North West fencers Jon Willis and Stuart Marshall have qualified for the British Fencing and Sport UK for World Class Development status as part of the Olympic Pathway programme.

They will each receive an Athlete Personal Award and will train on a full-time basis at the British Fencing Elite Training Centre in Hornsey, North London, and overseas.

While we will be sad to see them go we wish them all the best in their moves to London.

British Fencing Performance Director, Graham Watts, says, "This new Olympic Pathway Programme has enabled us to identify our very best prospects for London 2012 and give them the level of support never previously possible for British fencers. Supported by generous financial investment from UK Sport, leading sports scientists, improved training facilities and world class coaches, Britain's Olympic fencers will be fully equipped, physically and mentally, to realize their potential as highly skilled and fit athletes. I am convinced that as a direct result of this Pathway Programme, we will achieve our target of seeing the Union Jack raised over the fencing podium at London in 2012".
