2017 Can Am

Kanata sent Bob and Taner to this year's Can-Am event held again in Markham (east of Toronto). This event is the premiere Veteran's Fencing Tournament in North America and it attracts the continent's best fencers - and some from further afield.

Under Coach Jon's watchful eye, Bob returned with a Bronze Medal in the 60+ sabre event, having been eliminated in the semi-finals by a former World Champion from the USA. Taner put up the best performance of his career and was outstanding in the Team event. Kanata entered a Sabre Team where Taner and Bob were joined by Zygmund (who often practices with us on Fridays) and our good friend Francis, who travelled from Hong Kong (where he runs a fencing school) to compete in all three weapons at the Can-Am.
