Ironically, the 6 medals earned by US fencers should have resulted in a higher USOC funding level over the next quad. Unfortunately, our relationship with the USOC has changed as a result of the organization's financial mismanagement. Anyone want to speculate how our fencer's stellar performance might impact on the immediate future?
Hopefully we will capitalize on this remarkable publicity (unlike 2004) generated by these results. This will be the first test for the "new" administration.
