Tribute to Rory van Noort who had an amazing year in 2012 Winning consecutive all major tournament that year. He was a promising HEMAist and fierce tournament fighter. The finals in Swordfish was the only finals were he scored a silver medal. It was a tough bout. Rory lost by a hair in the against from Dennis Ljunqvist. Who himself is an amazing fighter.
Rory took his own life at the end of that successful year. He was 26 years old. He will be remembered as a kind and gentle giant, who fought like lion and brought a smile to everyones face. This is the last picture of Matthys, Rory and Mishaël together. Shot at WWOC 2012 in Hannover.
