Check out the details for what will be one of the most anticipated events of Saskatoon 2018.
Men’s foil category B
Brazil’s epee London 2012 Paralympic champion Jovane Guissone is on a mission to return to his best and capture another gold in Tokyo.
Boosting his chances in Canada is that fact that he is also the defending Americas title holder in the foil. So far in 2018 Guissone has grabbed three World Cup bronzes in Montreal, Canada; Pisa, Italy, and Eger, Hungary.
But Guissone’s teammate Vanderson Chaves will also take to the piste in Saskatoon. The pair went head-to-head in the gold medal match two years ago before Guissone emerged the victor.
Argentina’s Hugo Alderete is another main contender as the bronze medallist from last time around.
The 2018 IWAS Wheelchair Fencing Americas Championships run from 14-16 September.
