By the time you watch this episode of Talking Watches, Curtis McDowald will be in Tokyo, along with the rest of the US fencing team. Fencing, for many Americans, is an exotic sport – so much so that if you mention it, you might very well get a blank stare. (I remember asking a clerk at a Montgomery Ward department store, in the 1970s, if they sold fencing equipment. I ended up in an aisle full of gear for building fences.)
But McDowald and his team hope to change all that – and to establish American fencing as a force to be reckoned with, internationally.
