Bronze in Russia for USA Fencer Miles Chamley-Watson; Joins Meinhardt and Getz in top-16 of World Rankings

St. Petersburg, Russia –  Team USA Foil Fencer Miles Chamley-Watson fenced his way to the Bronze Medal at the world cup.  His results, places him in the top-16 of the world rankings joining Beijing Olympian Gerek Meinhardt and National Team Member Kurt Getz.

Is there a stronger young team in the world?   With all three starters under the age of 24 and with Alex Massailas also making international results (he´s only 16!) this team is going to be one to be reckoned with for a long time to come. They will surely be Olympic medal contenders for London 2012 if they continue to improve.

Go Team USA and congrats to Miles!

  1. I’m 16 now and I started fencing about a year ago. This makes me feel like I started too late.

  2. I started fencing when I was 13 and didn´t get good until much later. I made my first team when I was 24 years old. I was just doing HS fencing before that so while you are starting a bit late to try to be an Olympian, you still have enough time if you work hard and train well.

  3. Thanks, Tim! You’re my role model. Okay, I feel like a lame fangirl right now. Oh well.

  4. Поздравляю!to Miles Chamley-Watson.
