There was good spirit between competitors and an incredibly positive outcome for the UK. We have seen a marked improvement across a number of teams since last battle of the nations. We have new fighters, new energy and good progress across the board. I am especially impressed by the development within the women’s duels categories and I am confident we will see a great showing from them at the “Battle of the Nations”-2018″.
Antony was impressed with the work done by Lukas Kowal in organizing the qualifying tournament and developing the National Team over the last year. This work has been invaluable and Antony is sure that the new captain, Daniel Winter, will continue such an outstanding work.
