Kanata fencer competing in Italy!

Aricia April 23 Medal Winner Small

Bob happened to be travelling in Italy this past month and was invited to compete in the Italian Masters Championship event being held in Ariccia (just south of Rome). After a poor start in the poules he exceled in the DE's until confronting the eventual tournament winner and current World Bronze medalist, Guilio Paroli who relegated Bob to 8th place. (Apparently, they give medals down to 8th place in Italy.) Here is Bob on the podium with a borrowed red jacket to represent Canada as he hadn't planned on competing so did not bring along his regular gear! Congratulations Bob!
