And Yet Another Olympic Fencing Update!

The US Men's Sabre Team took the team Silver medal today! France took the gold, and Italy beat Russia for the Bronze medal.


I have had the priveldge of watching Keeth Smart fence live at one of the national tournaments. It is even more remarkable because Keeth was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder and missed a few months of training. During his treatment, he lost his mother to cancer. He is a true Olympian. http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/news?slug=reu-fencingsmartdc&prov=reuters&type=lgns

This makes 6 medals for US fencing at this Olympics. The is higher than the total medal count for US fencing in the last 60 years combined!
