Senior foilist Brendan Cusack fenced at the Long Beach Grand Prix today. He earned a place in the second round with pool victories over Matsuyama JPN, Santamaria Ayala COL, and Samora Geronimo DOM. In the preliminary 64, Cusack was overturned by Hassan EGY.
Placing 77th of 139 in this top-tier event, Cusack becomes our first fencer to qualify for this summer’s European Championships and World Championships. Congratulations!
