Tony Bouskill takes out top fencing title at Fieldays 2022

For the fourth national fencing competition in a row, reigning champion Tony Bouskill proved too sharp to beat

Tony Bouskill wins top fencing title

The hotly contested New Zealand Fencing Competition (NZFC) held annually at New Zealand Agricultural Fieldays® saw a fierce battle between competitors, but the always-on-form Tony Bouskill was too strong to topple.

It’s the fourth coveted Golden Pliers by WIREMARK Singles Championship trophy for Tony, and he and his father Shane Bouskill also took out the Fieldays Silver Spades Doubles Championship, showing great teamwork and dedication to the job at hand. This is not the first time the duo has won the Fieldays Silver Spades Doubles Championship, having competed and won the same championship and award in 2017, 2019, and 2021.

Sander Visser worked hard to take out the top spot in the Bill Schuler competition, named after legendary Waikato-born fencer Bill Schuler who passed away in 2018.

The fencing competition demands a high level of physical strength, fitness, and an eye for detail – demonstrated in the high quality of finished products at the end of each heat.
