Gerek Meinhardt Captures Bronze Medal at World Championships!

Meinhardt-1858

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!
