Kickass Woman Of The Day: Samantha Swords, Winner Of The World Jousting Tournament

This stoic, armor-clad modern day knight is Samantha Catto-Mott, AKA Samantha Swords. Earlier this year, she won the long sword competition at the World Jousting Invitational in New Zealand. Swords has been training in medieval combat for years, and even designed the weapon she now uses to terrify and defeat her competitors (long swords are strong but not sharp, and designed to behave like a sharp sword, but preferably without killing anyone). “Kickass” actually seems a bit too tame of a word to describe her; I might need to change the title of this post to “Epic Warrior Of The Day” to do her justice.
