Russia and Italy won the team events as the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation Wheelchair Fencing World Cup drew to a close in São Paulo.

The Russian quartet of Artur Yusupov, Alexander Kuzyukov, Roman Fedyaev and Maxim Shaburov defeated Poland in the final to win the men's team épée at Brazil Paralympic Training Centre.

For Shaburov, the individual world and European champion in the men's épée A category, it helped to ease the disappointment of his 17th-place finish when going solo yesterday.

Poland's squad of Kamil Rzasa, Dariusz Pender, Michal Nalewajek and Norbert Calka had to make do with the silver medals as bronze went to Iraq.

Hayder Al-Ogaili, Ali Mnahi, Ammar Ali and Zainulabdeen Al-Madhkhoori defeated France's Romain Noble, Robert Citerine, Yohan Peter and Yannick Ifebe to earn the last space on the podium.

In the women's team foil, Paralympic gold medallist Beatrice Vio helped Italy to gold with the country only fielding three fencers.

Vio, fresh from her individual women's foil B title yesterday, joined forces with Loredana Trigila and Andrea Mogos to defeat Hungary's Boglarka Mezo, Eva Andrea Hajmasi and Zsuzsanna Krajnyak in the final.

Krajnyak was another fencer hoping for a second gold medal in São Paulo but had to settle for silver after her individual foil A success. 

Russia won bronze as they beat Ukraine.

Irina Mishurova, Ludmila Vasileva, Alena Evdokimova and Iuliia Maya proved too powerful for Nadiia Doloh, Nataliia Mandryk, Tetiana Pozniak and Nataliia Morkvych.

The next World Cup will take place in Polish capital Warsaw between July 11 and 15.
