USA Fencing: Seth Kelsey Aims For Gold After Winning World Championships

Weston "Seth" Kelsey is one of the fencers who's most likeliest to win a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics game. Kelsey has struggled at the Olympics his last two times, falling 15-11 to Igor Tchourine of Russia in the Round of 32 in Athens in 2004, then falling 15-11 to silver medalist Fabrice Jeannet in the Round of 32 in Beijing in 2008.

There will be a good shot at redemption in London as Kelsey is coming off his best performance in international competition yet.

Kelsey's international accomplishments include a bronze medal at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, a silver medal in the 2010 World Championships in Paris, and most recently a gold medal at the 2012 World Championships in Kiev. They came in team competitions though. His best result in individual competition was a seventh place finish in the 2010 World Championships.
