During the Rio Olympics, Team USA won the bronze medal in women’s fencing team saber. Did you know that two of the four fencers are Polish-American?
Monica Aksamit (far left) was born in New York and spent the summers of her youth visiting her grandparents in Poland. Dagmara Wozniak (second from left) was born in Wrocław, Poland and moved to the United States with her family when she was one. Both Olympians got their start in fencing at the Polish-American Fencing Club in Linden, New Jersey led by Coach Janusz Młynek. We congratulate them on their great accomplishment and wish them all the best. Gratulacje!
