Park, Popescu win Qatar Grand Prix Fencing

South Korea’s Park Sang-Young showed poise and patience to win the Men’s Individual epee in the 2017 Qatar Grand Prix Fencing Championship at Aspire Dome on Sunday.

The 2016 Rio Olympics Individual gold medal winner claimed gold after fellow countryman Jung Jin Sun who lounged for his opponent’s face failed to connect to win 3-2 and claim the $6000 winner's prize.

In the women's event, Rio Olympics gold medalist Romanian Ana-Maria Popescu dominated former Qatar Grand Prix champion Mara Navarria 10-6 in a largely one-sided contest
