Fencng is a Sexy Sport: Natalie Portman Edition!

I need to ask this question:  Who DOESN’T fence these days? It’s everywhere!

These stunning pictures are stills from an Asian Shampoo Commercial Natalie Portman did recently.  

In the commercial, she is wielding a foil and making us all want to buy Lux Super Rich Shampoo.

Now why in the world isn’t this commerical airing in the USA???

Fashion Inspired by Fencing

"To celebrate the 2008 Olympics, Lane Crawford, the Chinese luxury retailer, commissioned 12 fashion designers to each design a uniform for their favorite sport. While Stefano Pilati's running ensemble for Yves Saint Laurent might be better suited to competitive cocktailing, it is possible that archery could attract a much more enthusiastic audience if the athletes officially adopted the Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci's proposed uniform — or just looked more like the model wearing it.  The uniforms will then be auctioned off to benefit Unicef's relief funds for the victims of the Sichuan earthquake. " - ALIX BROWNE

Found this website with multiple designers who’ve created fashion outfits inspired by fencing!  Some pretty interesting stuff! What do you think?

I think Alexander McQueen’s designs were the best and read that one of his favorite sports is fencing… and yes, just sent him a message to see if he’s interested in sponsoring fencing 😉

U.S. Olympic Committee Announces 2010 U.S. Olympic Team Heading to Vancouver for 2010 Olympic Winter Games

Team USA features 216 athletes with 87 returning Olympians

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) today announced its team members for competition at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada. Team USA consists of 216 athletes, including 123 men and 93 women.

Highlighting the list are three Olympians heading to their fifth Winter Games. Luge athlete Mark Grimmette (Muskegon, Mich.) and Nordic combined skier Todd Lodwick (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) have been named to five consecutive U.S. Olympic Teams (1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010). Casey Puckett (Aspen, Colo.) competed in four straight Winter Games as an alpine skier (1992, 1994, 1998, 2002). He retired from the U.S. Alpine Ski Team in 2002 before returning to the slopes to try out ski cross, which makes its Olympic debut in Vancouver. Grimmette, Lodwick and Puckett join former bobsledder and current men’s bobsled head coach Brian Shimer as the only five-time U.S. Olympians to compete in a Winter Games in history.

“America’s finest athletes are ready to captivate our country once again in anticipation of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver,” said USOC Chief Executive Officer Scott Blackmun. “The 216 athletes we have officially entered into competition will provide inspiration for Americans young and old, and our athletes will do so with the pride and honor that is inherent in representing the United States of America.”
