<Nationalism/>Americans won a fencing gold</nationa
« on: August 23, 2004, 06:13:58 AM »
Okay. It is the first medal in my sport we have won in a really long time.  For those that might not of guessed, yes I was a fencer.  I had dreams. I had bad knees.  So now I just watch.

When I can, they seldom if ever televise Fencing, because nobody seems to care.  After all, the last medal in the sport we won was over a decade ago. I just found out about her win today because I wanted to see the point and match totals to see how badly we lost.

ALL HAIL OUR LITTLE HERO!!!!

Mariel Zagunis
United States
Age: 19
DOB: March 03, 1985 Sport: Fencing
 Height: 5' 8"  Weight: 143 pounds

08/17 Women's Individual Sabre Finals
Gold Medal Match Mariel Zagunis USA DEF Xue Tan CHN (15-9 (:54))

Nominate her for a wheaties box!!!

She won a GOLD MEDAL.  WE had a couple of almosts, losing bronzes in two teams and one individual mens event. But she one a gold medal.  

Someday we will regain our fencing powerhouse status of the late 70s early 80s.  But for now.

Times being what they are the wily Bartender replies: “sure, we serve anyone.”

The skeleton hands the man a silver and says: “Fine, I’ll have a pitcher of beer…and a mop”

Yeah, but the Italian women's fencing team got some major revenge in the 2012 games.

Gold, Silver, AND Bronze. Dang.

Is it bad that I didn't watch one event the entire Olympics?

Awesome on her though. Always great when the underdog comes out on top!
