Yuki Ota, Silver Medallist at the London Olympics
8 July 2013, London
Multiple Olympic medallist, foil fencer Yuki Ota, will give a talk about his experiences as a sportsman and his role as an ambassador for sport in Japan and internationally. He will discuss his experiences of representing his country at the very top level and talk about the thrill of receiving Olympic medals, which Ota managed in two consecutive Summer Olympic Games: Beijing 2008 and London 2012. He will speak about his formative years and how he is now on a mission to introduce fencing to young people in Japan and increase the profile of his sport. He has recently founded an organisation, Super Fencers, to achieve precisely these aims.
