Sunday 25th October saw University of Leicester Sports Scholar, Alex Lloyd take giant steps up the European U23 Fencing Rankings. Alex was competing in a senior International competition held in Barcelona, Spain which forms part of the U'23 European Ranking Circuit Events.

In the preliminary poule stage, Alex won all of his bouts. His winning form continued through the knock out stages through to the final. In a pulsating and close fought final Alex just missed out on the gold medal, losing to senior world bronze medallist, Carlos Llavador.

Last weekend’s result now elevates Alex to 7th in the European U’23 European Rankings and the possibility of being considered for other British Fencing selections throughout the 2018-19 season.
