Did you know President Obama fenced in front of the White House and that he says he loves the sport?
That our women’s saber team swept the medals at the Beijing Olympics and that overall team USA fencing took home 6 medals at the Games?
That the hit ABC show Modern Family has an entire episode based around the sport? (And many other shows have done the same!)
That fencing is featured in numerous advertisements around the world?
That fencing is a hot sport done by hundreds of thousands of people in the USA alone in clubs, after-school programs, high school teams, in the NCAA and other places? (And yes, that’s Natalie Portman fencing above)
Fencing is one of the greatest sports in the world and I’m hoping you’ll help me spread the word! Since we’re not on television a lot, it’s essential that we have a strong presence online. I’m working to centralize as many fun resources, pictures and articles as possible, but we need to be organized to grow and we all need to be involved!
