World University Games 2013: Husayn Rosowsky in squad

Olympian Husayn Rosowsky has been selected to represent the British Universities and College Sport Fencing team at the World University Games 2013 in Russia.

Rosowsky will be making his second appearance at the World University Games, after finishing sixth in Shenzhen in 2011.

He has since become senior British champion and competed for Great Britain at the London Olympic Games in 2012.

Rosowsky, of University of Greenwich, is joined by Marcus Mepstead of London School of Economics and Politics and Alex Tofalides of University College London for the tournament in Kazan.

The fencing trio will form part of a 175-strong British team comprising athletes from artistic gymnastics, badminton, football, judo, rugby sevens, shooting, swimming and tennis.

The World University Games is the second largest multi-sports event in the world, after the Olympic Games, with 13,000 athletes representing 170 countries.
