It’s no secret that the American fencers are roaring and ready to go for Rio. And we really think that this year is our year! The U.S. fencing team this year has a lot going for them, with talent, passion and experience all contributing to what we know will be an exciting few weeks in Rio.
There are five sports that have been in every single modern Olympic Games, for over a hundred years – Track and Field, Cycling, Gymnastics, Swimming and Fencing. Of those, there’s only one in which the men have never won a gold medal – fencing. This year really might be the time to break that tremendous streak.
American fencers are set to make history in Rio, to take on tough international competition but with excellent chances to fill the shelf with medals.
