Personal: Born in London and raised there until age nine, Chamley-Watson returned to his home country at his first Olympic Games in 2012. After a fifth-place finish at the 2010 Senior World Championships, Chamley-Watson ascended to a No. 2 world ranking during the 2011-2012 season. A multi-sport athlete in high school, Chamley-Watson also competed on his school's varsity soccer and basketball teams at The Knox School in Long Island.

Chamley-Watson's goal is to win Olympic gold and says every day he "trains like it's my last" to make his dream come true.

On Aug. 9, 2013 Chamley-Watson made history by becoming the first U.S. men's fencer ever to win an individual Senior World Championship title and went on to win silver in the team event as part of the first U.S. Men's Foil Team ever to medal at the Senior World Championships.
