Ayesha Fihosy Commonwealths Fund

Hello! My name is Ayesha Fihosy, I am a Law Graduate who has also been fencing for over ten years. I am on the Women's Foil Great British Team and have been representing Great Britain on the international stage for over eight years.

Through a determination to succeed and a huge amount of training I have successfully qualified and attended five Junior European and World Championships.

In 2015, I was the first British female fencer to win a Junior World Cup medal in over 20 years. Since becoming Senior and Junior British Champion in 2015, I have gone on to consistently medal in every Senior British Championship, recently taking home the Silver Medal at the British Championships in 2018.


In addition to this, I also try to help grow the sport that I love by regularly coaching and refereeing at youth events. Further, as a Lloyd's TSB Local Hero I have been involved in national campaigns to promote and motivate children to actively engage in sport which has been incredibly rewarding.

After winning the Birmingham Senior International this year I was selected to represent Great Britain at the 2018 European Championships in Serbia and England in the 2018 Senior Commonwealth Championships, taking place in Australia.


Unfortunately, I have very little in the way of financial support for my fencing and the cost of travel to get to both of these competitions will be hard for me to match without aid. Due to the high costs of flights and accommodation to Australia, it would be hugely appreciated if I received some help so I can attend this Championship and bring back the gold medal for England!
