France's Ivan Trevejo has said that his experience was key to guiding him to the gold medal in the men's individual epee at the European Games.
He told reporters: "I think my experience counted a lot. I felt I played well from the start and my tactics worked.
"This is a great reward for all the support the French federation have given me and for all the support of the team."
Trevejo won a silver medal at the 1996 Olympic Games when representing Cuba.
