Personal: Imboden took up fencing when, as a child, a stranger saw him playing with swords in a park and suggested he take up fencing. By 16, Imboden had qualified for his first major international team and had earned a bronze medal at the Cadet World Championships in 2010. On the junior level, Imboden won back-to-back gold medals in the team event at the Junior World Championships in 2011 and 2012. He broke through at the senior level in 2011 with a top-eight finish at the Senior World Championships and qualified for the London Olympic Gamese the following year. 

In 2013, Imboden made history with the U.S. Men's Foil Team when the squad won its first medal at the Senior World Championships with a silver. In 2015, Imboden reached the No. 1 position in the world rankings, becoming the second U.S. men's foil fencer to do so and the first U.S. man ever to earn the FIE Overall World Cup title. 

Imboden says he focuses on the mental aspects of fencing which have allowed him to achieve the success he has had in recent years, but he still says one of his biggest challenges is controlling his emotions on the strip.

When not competing on the world's stage, Imboden has traveled the globe as a top runway model, walking for labels such as Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton.
