Great news for USA Fencing.
NBC Universal Sports will be carrying the fencing world championships. This is the first time in history that the fencing world championships will be covered either live or on tape delayed on a television network of any kind in the US.
They are still trying to decide if they will carry the events live or if they will tape delay, but the CEO of the network will also be traveling to Turkey so they are certainly taking the event seriously.
The TV listing are still TBD, but you can check back here for times soon:
Of course, you can always just follow the World Championships on my twitter…twitter.com/timmorehouse.
Isn’t that more fun than TV these days?!?! Kidding.
Once the times are posted we will really need to rally our friends and family to watch and create some serious viral buzz. We need a good ratings show to continue getting coverage!
On our athlete end, we need to get ourselves into the medals rounds so we’re the ones people in the US will be watching when they tune into watch the finals!
USA Men’s fencing hasn’t won a world championships in over 70 years…time to remedy that!
