Five South Wales fencers are in the squad: epeeists James Taylor and Iona Pearson (Cardiff Fencing Club), foilists Abi Difford (Cardiff University/Gwent Sword Club) and Olivia Orchart (Gwent Sword Club/Bangor University) and sabreur Jo Chen (Russell Swords).
All Welsh weapons won the majority of their fights, with pride of place going to the women's foilists - including Cardiff student Abi Difford - who finished with a 92% win rate, losing only five of their 63 bouts.
WELSH foilists continue to dominate the UK fencing scene in the run-up to next month's Welsh Open competition in Cardiff.
