August 12-14, 2016, five fencers from the Niagara Swords fencing club joined elite youth fencers from across Ontario at the 2016 Ontario Summer Games Mississauga. Pranav Parahk, Nandana Parahk, Burke Willson and Karl Stang competed in sabre and Catherine Koziarz foil. The Ontario Summer Games were the culmination of a year long qualification process with competitions throughout Ontario.

What an exciting weekend at the Mississauga Hershey Centre.  Burke Willson got a silver in U15 men’s sabre and Bronze in U17 men’s sabre. Pranav and Karl Stang received gold in team and Burke Willson received a silver in team. Nandana came away with a 5th place finish in U17 Women’s Sabre and Catherine gave an excellent performance in both U17 & U15 Women’s Foil.

The Niagara Swords fencing club is the only Olympic sword fighting club in the Region catering to the Niagara community. Originally established at Brock University, now provides competitive and instructional programs throughout Niagara.
