Gold for Yuan Ping. Down to the wire at 10-10 after three periods. Liz McKenzie (Scotland) with priority for the extra time final minute. McKenzie retreated, Yuan Ping under pressure went forward, McKenzie, hesitated, Yuan Ping attacked, long and deep, the red light was on and buzzing, a beacon for victory. Yuan arms outstretched jumped for joy. Yuan Ping the 2010 Commonwealth Womenís Foil champion. The New Zealand team erupted in jubilation. New Zealandís first Individual Commonwealth Fencing Championship medal. First gold at this level since Melodie Colemanís (Dot Garde) 1962 Empire Games Womenís Foil gold medal.
