Aksamit Wins Gold in Charlotte
Olympic fencing extraordinaire Monica Aksamit took Gold in the 2020 Charlotte NAC SWS event this past weekend, her first major tournament of 2020. Aksamit was patient in a hard fought match against Ola Shelton; ecstatic with her final point, taking the match 15-9.
"Honestly, I’m still in disbelief. Sure I’ve been working tirelessly towards this goal, but after my recent disappointments on the piste, I started to think maybe it was impossible. First tournament of 2020 was a HUGE success and I have all of you to thank, " said a clearly elated Aksamit in an Instagram post to her 100k+ following.
