USA Men’s Epee Takes Home Historic Silver Medal at World Championships!

The Men’s Epee team of Seth Kelsey, Ben Bratton, Cody Mattern and Benji Ungar shocked the world today taking home a Silver Medal at the World Championships.

They nearly pulled off the Gold!  Leading by as much as 4 points into the 6th match before the French team rallied in front of their home crowd.

With Gerek Meinhardt’s Bronze in the men’s foil, and this result, this is by far the best world championships results for the USA Men in all their history. Not to mention top-8 performances in the individual events by Seth Kelsey and Miles Chamley-Watson.  With Mariel Zagunis’s gold medal in women’s saber, team USA comes home 3 medals from worlds!

Congrats to the men’s Epee fencers! You made us all very proud!
