POLAND calls for Wiltshire fencer Cador Beautyman, who has been selected to represent England at Europe’s largest youth fencing tournament in Wroclaw this weekend.

Beautyman, who started his fencing career at Swindon fencing club, ranked second in the U13 national standings at the end of last year following a series of events throughout 2018.

His efforts throughout the past 12 months have led him to be selected as one of six England athletes jetting off to the Polish city to compete in Challenge Wratislava.

He said: “It’s always been my goal to represent my country internationally and now I’ve achieved selection, I hope to give it my all and come back with a great result.”

Such is his talent, the teenager now travels to London to train with Hungarian coaches Tamas Kovacs and Julianna Revez at Knightsbridge Fencing Club.

Kovacs said: “This is one of the biggest highlights of the competition calendar.

“Cador has worked really hard and is going fully prepared for the event. Based on his recent form, I believe he can perform well.”

Beautyman’s efforts in the sport have been combined with support from charity Doing it for Dan.

Formed in the memory of Daniel Climance, who was killed when colliding with a road sweeper while riding his bike in June 2015, the charity awards grants to individuals and organisations across Wiltshire and the surrounding area.

The charity is now looking for people to take part in the Superhero Tri on August 17 at Dorney Lake in Windsor.
