All eyes were on Rio this summer as the USFA was busy with promoting fencing in different places around the country in support of our accomplished athletes in the Summer Olympics. That’s rightfully so – the momentum and the press has never been better for fencing.
But there was actually something else big going on in fencing this summer – the Pan American Youth and Veteran Championship in Puerto Rico!
The Pan American Youth and Veteran Championship this year was held in Ponce, Puerto Rico on August 22-26, 2016. Last year the Championship was held in Lima, Peru, and the next year it supposed to be at the Virgin Islands.
