IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson went head-to-head fencing Norwegian Olympic silver medal winning Bartosz Piasecki in Oslo this last week.
Although he was defeated, Dickinson told Aftenposten.no, “for me fencing is training I gave up competing in tournaments when I was 23, at that point I was ranked number 7 in Britain. I fence because I enjoy it, and the by-product is that I end up getting in reasonably good shape. Actually fencing is very similar to the way I run around on stage. Or maybe I run around on stage like that because I fence. Either way it works for me."
