2007 Commonwealth Veteran Fencing Championships, Toronto, ON

Gord was in the the Commonwealth Veteran Fencing Championships this morning, in the sabre division.

There were about 50 people from across the Commonwealth entered into the event. There was a men's and a women's division. Gord fought guys from Canada, England, Scotland, Wales and Isle of Man.

There were two rounds of five bouts. Alas, though he put up a valient effort, he was elimated in the first disqualification round by a seasoned fencer from England.
