Our young USA foil fencers continue to AMAZE!!!
Gerek Meinhardt captured a Bronze medal today at the Senior World Championships in Paris, France. I’m not sure the last time it was that we captured a medal in foil at senior worlds, but it has been A LONG TIME!
Miles Chamley-Watson also fenced his way into the quarter-finals! The two built on the moment of Kurt Getz, who last year at worlds made the final 8and Gerek took things to a whole new level!
Hew fell to 3-time World Champion Peter Joppich of Germany 15-12.
Congrats Gerek and Miles!
One can only be excited now of what these guys might be capable of in the future including the London 2012 Olympics!
