After an careful selection process, 16 Fencers have been chosen to take part in the Olympic Pathway Programme.
With funding from UK Sport, they will benefit from full-time training at state-of-the-art facilities, access to world-class coaches and sports scientists helping them as they they prepare to be in top physical and mental condition for competition in 2012.
British Fencing Performance Director, Graham Watts, said: "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.
"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."
