The president of Dynamo Fencing Clubs and the Head Coach of the West Vancouver Premier Fencing Academy, Igor Gantsevich has introduced over 50,000 youth to the sport of fencing across the lower mainland of British Columbia.
In his nearly decade long career as an elite athlete and Canadian National Team member from 2004 to 2012, Igor enjoyed success at the highest levels including a Bronze Medal at the 2011 PanAM Games and championships at Provincial, National, North American and PanAmerican Championships.
The culmination of his dedication and hard work came in 2008 when he played a critical role in securing Canada a Medal at a World Cup event (International Grand Prix), the first of its kind in Canadian history.
