8:40pm Monday 28th October 2013 in Sport
HANLEY Swan’s Malcolm Fare won a bronze medal in the men’s epee 70+ category at the recent Veteran’s World Fencing Championships in Varna, Bulgaria.
In his 44-strong event, 71- year-old Fare won all his group bouts to emerge as number three seed.
He had a bye to the last 32, where he scraped through a tough first direct elimination encounter against Monti of Italy 10-9.
He then edged out Lenoir of France by the same score before beating Germany’s Klein 7-5 at time.
But in the semi-finals he fell 5-10 to Cassago of Italy, who went on to win the championship, and had to settle for bronze.
