The Voice of Sport's Bart Chan talks to Tia Simms Lymn and Yasmine Fosu about their chosen sport of fencing and how they are breaking new ground on the international scene.

The 13-year-olds, in order to gain more competitive experience, decided to represent Jamaica and Ghana, respectively, shunning the opportunity to fence for Britain. Tia holds the honour of being the first person to fence for Jamaica at an international level, while Yasmine, only second to her friend in the rankings, talks about the pressure of playing an individual sport.
