Igor Gantsevich’s near decade as an elite athlete and national fencing team member culminated in 2008 when he won a bronze team medal at an International Grand Prix – the first of its kind in Canadian history. He finished his career on a high note with a bronze medal in men’s team épée at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Moving from an athlete role, Igor is becoming a major force in the development of fencing in Canada and the world. He is currently the president of Dynamo Fencing Club – one of Canada’s top clubs, a board member of the Canadian Fencing Federation and is an executive committee member of the Pan American Fencing Club organization. Over the past year Igor has brought fencing to over 10,000 children across the lower mainland of British Columbia, and as a result he now instructs over 500 full time students on a weekly basis.
