Go, go, girl. Put people of African-Caribbean descent on the map.

so proud to say i know her mom, Marva and met this wonderful young woman several years ago. I am looking forward to going to London for the

Thanks for featuring this young fencer! I love the sport (having dabbled in college) and usually end up frustrated at the lack of televising of the event. I hope to see Ms. Prescod on TV this summer!
Did you know that Cornel Wilde was a Columbia alum AND an Olympic fencer as well?
