In Memoriam – Matthew Chan

Matthew ChanIt is with a very heavy heart than I announce the passing of one of the original founders and long time head coach of Metroblades Fencing Club – Matthew Chan. Matthew passed away last night after a long and valiant battle against cancer. An extremely experienced competitive fencer, Matthew participated in the 1972 & 1976 Olympics, the 1974 & 1978 Asian Games for both individual and team events. He also participated in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics as a referee. Matthew was a worthy challenge to all our members (still unbeaten!), and an inspiration to all his students. To me, he will always be the model of what a coach should be. He will be remembered always and deeply missed.
