Elite athletes can be found in all sports, but undoubtedly one of the biggest sporting events every year is the Super Bowl.
Football and fencing might seem like polar opposites, but in reality they have a lot in common. First off, both are very physical sports that require precision and focus. They also both have proud histories. Fencing and football each require years of discipline and dedication in order to achieve mastery. There’s a certain amount of daring required to play football and to fence, after all each does require you to hit you opponent.
Finally, both can be perhaps a bit stuffy and stiff. That’s not to say that they aren’t fun and immensely enjoyable to engage in, but it is to say that there is a perception that in order to be good in football or in fencing you have to be ultra serious. Practice and competition aren’t supposed fun – they’re supposed to be focused, right? Well, actually you can be both focused and have an incredible amount of fun. And probably this is the only way to succeed by having both.
