Rigin outclasses Massialas in Cuba

Russia’s Dmitry Rigin kept his composure to edge out Alexander Massialas and clinch the men’s foil Grand Prix in Havana on Sunday.

The 29-year-old, who took silver at the Prince Takamodo World Cup in Tokyo last year, was made to battle hard throughout the contest but stepped it up a gear in the dying moments with three consecutive hits to win through 15-12.

This was Rigin’s second straight win here in Cuba after he downed Auki Ota in the final last year.

The next event gets underway in Shanghai on May 15.
