Fencing Alumni Compete in Veterans' World Championship

A handful of Princeton alumni took their fencing pursuits overseas for the World Veteran Fencing Championship in Porec, Croatia, that ran from Sept. 29 through Oct. 3.

Jim Adams '61 finished second of 34 competitors in the 70-and-over epee group, winning all six bouts in his pool and taking his first three bracket matches before taking silver in the final match.

Keith Baker '72 won three of his five pool bouts in the 60-69-year-old saber division, adding a bracket win to that total before falling in the second elimination bout.

Don Anthony '79 placed second of 41 entrants in the 50-59-year old saber division, winning four of his five pool bouts before taking four more elimination bouts and claiming the silver medal.

Louise Leighton '80 went 3-2 in her pool bouts in the 50-59-year old epee division, adding an elimination bout before dropping her second bracket-round contest.

Rob Pavlovitch '82 won four of his five bouts in the pool round of the 50-59-year-old foil division before losing in his first elimination-round bout.

Each competitor represented their home country with four of the five Princetonians under the Team USA banner, while Pavlovitch represented Croatia. Adams' and Anthony's silver medals were two of the five that the American team won, helping the U.S. to tie Germany for the highest medal total (11) of the 17 competing nations.
