Sir Nicholas Winton 1909-2015

Sir Nicholas Winton, who organised the rescue of 669 children destined for Nazi concentration camps, has died aged 106. Sir Nicholas brought the children to Britain, battling bureaucracy at both ends, saving them from almost certain death, and then kept quiet about his exploits for a half-century.

In addition to this amazing achievement he made an impact on the fencing world, alongside his late brother Bobby. They felt strongly that the sport needed a competition involving fencers from all over the country. And so they devised the Winton Cup, an inter-section team event that was presented by them in 1950 and continues to this day as the most popular team competition in fencing.

The Winton Cup takes place this weekend in Nottingham, and time will be taken to at the competition to celebrate a remarkable life.
