Congratulations to Sholto Douglas, Sydney Uni Sport and Fitness Elite Athlete Program member, who placed 21st at the World Championships Men's Foil in Leipzig. This is the best result achieved by any Australian fencer at the Senior World Championships since 2003.

Sholto won all of his pool bouts, and so promoted directly to the Tableau of 64. He won 15-11 against Daniel Giacon (NED), but in the round of 32 was defeated by Gerek Meinhardt (USA).

Fellow Elite Athlete Program member Jesse Morris placed 148th in the competition.
