George Malloch-Brown '19 qualifies for Junior Olympics
Denison University student George Malloch-Brown ’19, from Andover, Great Britian, qualified for the Junior Olympics in two events with a gold medal in epee and silver in the foil competition at the Columbus division-qualifying event on the weekend of December 13. This remarkable achievement represents the first time a Denison fencer has qualified for the prestigious event, where the nation’s top under-20 fencers compete.
Coach Peter Grandbois commented, “George is such a pleasure to have on the team. Not only is he immensely talented in both foil and epee, two of the three weapons in fencing, he is an ideal role model of sportsmanship. I’m looking forward to seeing how he measures up to the nation’s best fencers at the Junior Olympics in Cleveland in February.”
