Alexander (Sandy) Leckie is Scotland's most successful Commonwealth Games fencer with two gold, one silver and one bronze medal.
Fencers wear white uniforms because before the creation of electronic scoring, touches were recorded on the white surface with a wad of ink-soaked cotton on the tip of the weapons.
Fencing is one of only five sports to be held at every modern Olympic Games, the other four being Athletics, Cycling, Swimming, and Gymnastics.
Originally there was no time limit on a fencing bout. This changed after the 1930s after a bout lasted for seven hours!
