Women's sabre and Men's epée, Pan American Championships in Santiago
In the gold medal final on women’s sabre, Wozniak was within two touches of Zagunis at 9-7 when the five-time Senior World Champion scored six of the next seven touches to claim her sixth Pan American Zonal title with a 15-8 win in Santiago, Chile – the most of any athlete in any weapon in the zone
“It’s always tough fencing your teammates because you practice with them and know them better than any other athletes, whether it’s Pan Ams or Grand Prix or the World Championships. So it just comes down to making it a good bout and I think they were definitely good bouts today,” Zagunis said.
