JOs Recap

It was a very strange but exciting weekend to be at the Junior Olympics as a filmmaker and not a competitor. (I haven’t fenced at a JOs in 7 years, but it still feels like yesterday.) Following many events, days would begin at 7am and sometimes end at 11pm! Thankfully, events had scattered start times so the larger events would begin early and end at a reasonable hour. The largest was the Junior Men’s Epee event with 220 competitors and all of these kids have qualified through their division or had national points prior to the event. The sport is definitely growing and I was proud to see the strong NJ representation and my young teammates competing.
