Members of Team USA Fencing training for Worlds in Tauber, Germany

Hi from Tauberbischofsheim, Germany!

We’ve (James Williams, Ben Igoe, Mike Etropolski, myself and Coach Yury Gelman) been in Germany for 4 days now training with the German, Italian and Romanian national teams.    The training center here is probably the largest in the world and we’ve been enjoying ourselves.   Fencing a lot of matches against different people and enjoying the fresh air of this small town.

I will post pictures of the training center later.

There is a big pre-worlds camp competition this weekend and the Canadian national team along with Daryl Homer and a few other folks are flying in for it.  Should be a great warm up for Worlds.(and the national competition we have next week in Cincinnati!)

Tomorrow we are resting and touring a bit before the competition!
