It is with great pleasure that I can advise that the Australian Government has awarded Helen Smith with a membership of the Order of Australia (AM). The citation is "For significant service to fencing as an Olympic athlete, coach and mentor, and through a range of leadership and administrative roles."
Helen is currently President of Oceania Fencing Confederation and also the Commonwealth Fencing Federation, in addition to a position on an FIE commission.
Fencing New Zealand congratulates Helen on a much deserved award.
