The United States won both team titles contested today as the Pan American Fencing Championships continued in Canadian city Montreal.

American fencers triumphed in both the men's foil and women's epee competitions to add to their impressive medal tally at the Centre Pierre Charbonneau.

In the men's foil, the quartet of Miles Chamley-Watson, Race Imboden, Alexander Massialas and Gerek Meinhardt won gold after defeating Brazil 45-37 in the final.

They had earlier claimed a 45-15 win over Puerto Rico in the last four.

All four American fencers had previously won medals in the individual foil competition, with Imboden winning gold by beating Massialas in the final.

Meinhardt and Chamley-Watson shared the bronze medals, while the quartet are also the Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medallists.

Brazil's Guilherme Toldo, Henrique Marques, Julien Baneux and Heitor Shimbo knocked out Mexico in the semi-finals, 45-33.

The Mexicans recovered to beat Puerto Rico 45-32 for bronze.
