Cutting a Dash

Venezuela won its first Olympic gold medal in 44 years at the London Olympics when Ruben Limardo won gold in the fencing.

IF winning the first gold medal for his country since Mexico in 1968 was not enough of an honour, his President Hugo Chavez, has acknowledged his achievement by presenting his with a gold plated replica of South American Independence hero Simon Bolivar’s sword as a memento for his feat.

A wonderful gesture and an appropriate gift.
