Chen Yijun (CHN) and Tian Jianquan (CHN) compete in the men’s Individual Sabre Wheelchair Fencing – Category A final on Day 8 of the London 2012 Paralympic Games at ExCeL.

China’s Chen Yijun won his second Wheelchair Fencing medal of London 2012 after seeing off countryman Tian Jianquan in a thrilling men’s Sabre – Category A final.

Tian looked in superb form after beating eventual bronze medallist Chan Wing Kin of Hong Kong 15-4 in the semi-finals, but in the final it was his Chinese rival Chen who edged in front and held on for a 15-12 victory to add gold to the silver medal he collected in the men’s Individual Foil on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, Greece’s Gerasimos Pylarinos had emerged from the pool stages as the number one seed after winning all four of his bouts, but he then lost 15-6 in the quarter-finals to Poland’s Radoslaw Stanczuk.
