Venezuela's Limardo wins the Olympic gold medal in men's individual epee
The Venezuelan fencer topped Norway's Bartosz Piasecki 15-10 in the title bout, winning the second Olympic gold medal in Venezuelan history
Venezuelan fencer Rubén Limardo made history on Wednesday by winning the gold medal in the men's individual epee at the London 2012 Olympic Games, after beating Norwegian Batosz Piasecki 15-10.
The fencer, born in Ciudad Bolivar town, southern Bolívar state, became the second Venezuelan national to win an Olympic gold medal, after Francisco "Morochito" Rodríguez won the gold medal in boxing in Mexico 1968.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
