COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Fencing is proud to announce the renewal of its agreement with Absolute Fencing, the official equipment supplier for USA Fencing. This extended partnership will run through the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles.
For more than a decade, Absolute Fencing has been a key player in supplying USA Fencing tournaments with top-of-the-line fencing strips, scoring machines and other equipment crucial to running a fencing tournament. This ongoing alliance will help ensure that USA Fencing competitions continue to be recognized as the best in the world.
"We are thrilled to renew our partnership with Absolute Fencing, and a special thanks to Gary Lu for his commitment not only to our national events but to our efforts to grow the sport," says Phil Andrews, CEO of USA Fencing. "Partners like Absolute Fencing are hard to find, and we are lucky to have them."
Absolute Fencing, under the leadership of Lu, its founder and president, has consistently strived for excellence in providing high-quality fencing gear and tournament equipment. The renewed partnership aligns with USA Fencing and Absolute Fencing’s shared vision of supporting the sport's growth at the grassroots level to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
"Absolute Fencing is proud to continue its long-term partnership with USA Fencing as official equipment supplier," Lu says. "As our sport continues to expand in the USA and worldwide, we look forward to supplying high-quality, readily available fencing gear and tournament equipment to USA Fencing and its members for all levels of practice and competition.”
This partnership renewal comes at a pivotal moment in the sport's history as excitement builds for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles — the first home Summer Games since 1996. As that important moment approaches, both organizations will continue to do their part to elevate the profile of fencing in the United States and globally.
And that’s more than just a nice mention in a press release. Absolute Fencing has been doing its part to support the growth of fencing through initiatives like the Absolute Fencing Gear All-Academic Team and Absolute Fencing Equipment Refurbishment Program.
