It has been a struggle to see fencing in the Olympics on network TV, even after one of the USA fencers, Lee Kiefer in women’s foil, won a gold medal. But I did find a way to see the bronze and gold medal bouts, both individual and team, on the internet. We have been able to get the NBC Sports app on our FireTV. So there should be a way for everyone to watch some excellent fencing. They do not show all the touches, but it has a very good selection of the best actions.

By the way, it seems footwork is critical for the winners. Hmmm…. where have I heard that before?

I look forward to seeing many of you in August, and the rest of you in September.
