World Champion Miles Chamley-Watson

I’m thrilled to have watched some of the 2013 World Championships in Budapest streamed live on the FIEvideo channel on YouTube. One of the most exciting things was to watch Miles Chamley-Watson losing with a devastating score in the round of 8 and come back to win his bout! Facing adversity after adversity, Miles proved that you don’t have to be the top seed to become a world champion. A lot of what makes an athlete is heart and the will to win. I couldn’t be more proud of our first male American to win a World Championship title in fencing. Congratulations, Miles!
