We congratulate Jennifer Hope and Jessica Beer in Women's Epee and Yuan (Wayne) Cui in Men's foil.
Jenny and Jessica have both had good recent World Cup performances. It is of great significance that Wayne who has dazzled us with his skill on the piste in New Zealand can now participate in international competition for New Zealand.
We congratulate him on his recent New Zealand citizenship and on now being a Kiwi. This has made it possible for him to be eligible to fence, without restriction, as a New Zealand representative in all levels of competitions.
I personally wish to acknowledge Wayne for his passion and enthusiasm for our sport, his dedication and committment to "Living The Dream". He has overcome many obstacles and has been unwaivering in his determination. May the Dream shine Gold.
To all the New Zealand fencers, our Team, selected for the World Championships who are all "Living the Dream" we wish them well and every success, with their preparation and journey to the 2005 World Championships in Leipzig, Germany.
