Venezuela hizo historia al conquistar su segundo oro olímpico tras ganar el esgrimista Rubén Limardo Gascón la prueba de espada individual varonil al vencer al noruego Bartosz Piasecki en los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012.

Es la segunda vez en la historia de los juegos de la era moderna que se escucha el himno venezolano, la primera vez fue en México 1968 cuando se colgaron la presea dorada en la disciplina de boxeo.

Es así como después de más de 40 años los venezolanos vuelven a subir a lo más alto del podio, pues este día Rubén Limardo Gascón dominó 15-10 la final de la prueba ante el europeo en la Arena 1 del complejo ExCel.
