Olympian discovered her love for fencing in Davis

Published on July 27, 2016 for The Davis Enterprise: Eileen Grench and I both attended the same fencing academy and received lessons from the same teacher growing up in Davis…but that’s where the similarities end. Grench began fencing about 10 years earlier — and she’s a 2016 Panamanian Olympian. This story blended Grench’s love for her sport with her connection to Panama.

There was also some follow-up; I tracked Grench’s progress in the Olympics, tweeting out updates for those who had read the story and were interested in her performance.
