Jess Shortlisted for World Awards

Jess Varley has been shortlisted for the Best Senior Female Athlete for the UIPM (World Pentathlon Association) awards, which is rather impressive.

It would be great if as many people would vote for Jess (and also Kate French who I taught to fence many years ago).
