They did it! The USA Women's Foil Team defeated the 2007 World Championship Polish Team, then defeated Hungary to win the Silver Medal, eventually losing to the Russians in the Gold Medal Bout. Likewise the Men's Saber Team won the Silver Medal! In addition, the USA women's fencers swept the Olympic saber individual event,
winning gold, silver and bronze! We were hoping for big things, but it
doesn't get any better than that! Mariel Zagunis repeated her gold
medal performance from Athens, and Sada Jacobson and Becca Ward won
silver and bronze, respectively. Read all about it, here: http://www.nbcolympics.com/fencing/news/newsid=185387.html#three+all+u+s+sweeps+sabre
