Nataliia Morkvych added gold to bronze in winning the women's sabre A class.

The Ukrainian, who finished joint third in the women's foil A class on the opening day, beat fellow countrywoman Yevheniia Breus in the final.

Bronze medals went to Poland's Marta Fidrych and Eva Andrea Hajmasi of Hungary.

Hungary's Richard Osvath added silver to gold after reaching the men's sabre A final.

Osvath, who won the earlier men's foil A event, was defeated on this occasion by China's Li Hao.

Bronze was shared by Andrii Demchuk of Ukraine and Russia's Viktor Dronov.

In the men's sabre B competition, gold went to Italy's Alessio Sarri, who defeated Russia's Alexander Kurzin in the final.
