Lara Serviolle (above right), a member of the Irish Medieval Armoured Combat team, has won the IMCF Female Longsword World Championship!!
Lara is an amazing woman, living in Sligo and has stormed the medival Combat world winning the competition for the second time after her win in 2017.
She is an inspiration and deserves as much recognition as she can get!
10 fighters and supporters travelled over from Ireland for the event and over 500 fighters from all over the world fought in the 4 day event
Medival Armoured Combat is a full contact sport, fighters compete in full armour with swords, shields, axes, maces etc. We are trying to build the profile to the sport in Ireland and Lara is an amazing advocate!!
