    Well, I certainly would not want to be on the other end.... But by all accounts all three are incredible athletes.

    can't wait to see if our team can take the Korean archers this time around.
    The Korean team is INCREDIBLE.

    Clean sweep on the women's saber? Yeeehaaw!

    I doubt that anyone could credibly question the athletic talent of any Olympic level fencer. At this level of competition all of them will be exceptional.

    Any of these folks could close from 21 ft so quickly that the Tueller drill wouldn't have any meaning any more.

    Generally, sabreurs are a little bit ... aggressive ...

    From a little thing going around about 10 years ago, Lock up Your Silver: There's Fencers in Town (though the physical description applies mostly to male sabreurs).

    Just found the author's name again: "by Jeff O'Brien"
