Personal: Meinhardt began fencing at the age of nine and a half and was competing on the national level within a year as he quickly moved through the junior and senior ranks where he won gold in both the Division I and U20 events at the USA Fencing National Championships in 2007. Meinhardt became the first U.S. men's fencer ever to qualify for the Cadet, Junior and Senior World Teams all in the same year (2007) and went on to qualify for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team as the youngest athlete ever to compete on a U.S. Olympic Fencing Team. In 2010, Meinhardt became the first U.S. men's foil fencer ever to win a medal at the Senior World Championships where he brought home a bronze.

In 2013, Meinhardt and his teammates closed out the season with a pair of firsts - both a No. 1 world ranking and a Senior World silver medal. Individually, Meinhardt made history again in January of 2014 when he won bronze at the Paris World Cup and secured a No. 2 individual world ranking.
