It was another dominant performance for the Canlas Fencing (CF) club as it captured a total of 12 of the 22 gold medals at stake in the 2022 Duelympics recently at Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

Keonn Landon Davies of CF-MIIS led the recent CF campaign as the 17-year-old captured three gold medals. A participant in the 2022 Junior/Cadet World Fencing Championships in Dubai, Davies ruled both the men’s foil Open and the Under-23 foil divisions.


Davies earned his third gold medal when he teamed up with fellow CF fencers Dustin Tan, Louise Shoemaker and James Lim, beating CF/PAREF’s Antonio Manuel, Clyde and Yllac Guinto, and Diego Rafael Son in the men’s team foil division of the two-day meet organized by Ezkrima.

In the women’s team foil, the CF Team A of Marina Carbonel, Kaijinsei dela Serna, Meg Garvacio and Jodie Tan defeated Aubrey Fernandez, Opao Catantan, Alyzabeth Leiana Gilbert and Juliana Jimenez of CF Team B.


CF’s U-10 mixed team foil also bagged the championship as the Team A of Willa Galvez, Yuna Canlas, Amber Diaz and Keith Daniel Castillo downed CF’s Team B of Matteo Canlas, Yohann Roldan, Jayden Shoemaker and Wyatt Guinto.

CF founder Rolando “Amat” Canlas Jr., also the national team coach, said that tournaments like this are important as Filipino fencers continue to develop their skills.
