29 Weeks of British Olympic and Paralympic sports – Week 13: Fencing

The Fencing coin was designed by Ruth Summerfield.

We contacted Ruth and asked her our usual questions.

1) Have you seen your coin ‘in the wild’ yet?

Yes I have seen my coin in change a couple of times and each time I get a new one I get quite excited.

2) Have you heard what the British team think about it?

I have no idea what the British fencing team thinks of the coin. I hope they like it.

3) What are you looking forward to in 2012

My plans for 2012 are to win the euromillions, buy a luxury yacht and sail it to Barbados.  I am not going to the Olympic games as I could not get tickets but I will probably watch some of it on tv.
