Long before it became a reliable launchpad for future Olympic medalists like Lee Kiefer OLY, Mariel Zagunis OLY and Courtney Hurley OLY, the USA Fencing Junior Olympic Championships were simply one man’s bold vision.
In the team event, squads of three fencers compete in a “relay match” where every fencer competes against every other fencer in a series of nine “legs,” or bouts. The first team to score 45 points (or the team leading when time expires) is the winner. But it’s a little more complicated than that.
The survey, open to all members through Feb. 15, 2023, will help USA Fencing staff serve our members more effectively. Plus, anyone who completes it will be entered to win a photo autographed by a fencing Olympian!
