TOKYO -- China's Paralympic team continued its winning momentum to snatch 11 more gold medals on Saturday at Tokyo 2020, topping the medal ranking with a total of 77 medals including 30 golds.

China snatched three gold medals in wheelchair fencing on Saturday. Sun Gang beat Hungary's Richard Osvath in the men's foil individual category A final, while his teammates Feng Yanke and Gu Haiyan respectively won golds in the men's foil individual category B and women's foil individual category A.

"This gold medal is what I have been dreaming for 12 years. Today I've finally realized my dream," Sun said. "We've been competing so many times against each other [against Osvath], but I think my condition today was better. I was nervous during the match, but I managed to do it."
