Heart…pounding…

…just watched the semifinal bout for Men’s Team Sabre between the US and Hungary (a sabre powerhouse). We came back from 36-40 to win 45-44!! OMG!! We still have to win another to get a medal, and if they lose the next round, they would have to fence again for bronze. But STILL.

We also got SILVER in Women’s Team Foil – again, UNHEARD of!!!! We’re SECOND in the fencing medal count this year – *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE*

Fantastic Olympic fencing for Team USA.

US sweeps Women’s Sabre!

Finally, a fencing post!  The US Women’s Sabre team swept the event this morning in Beijing.  Mariel Zagunis defended her gold and I believe set a US record.  Yay!
