Francisco Alberto Limardo Gascón (born March 27, 1987 in Ciudad Bolívar) is a Venezuelan épée fencer.[1] He is the brother of Rubén Limardo, who won Venezuela's first gold medal from a forty-four year drought at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Limardo competed as a member of the national fencing team at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, along with his brother Ruben, and compatriots Wolfgang Mejías and Silvio Fernández. Limardo and his team, however, lost the fifth place match of men's team épée to the Hungarian team (led by Géza Imre), with a total score of 20 touches.[2]
