    Dwight School Alum Joins US Olympic Team


    Today, Race Imboden, 2011 graduate of The Dwight School, was officially  named to the United States Olympic Team by the US Fencing Association.  After the fourth World Cup event, he mathematically qualified for the  Olympics in Men’s Foil based on his high team rankings. Mr. Imboden is  currently #6 in the FIE (Fédération Internationale d’Escrime) World  Senior Rankings, #2 in the USA Fencing Division I (Senior), and #2 in  the USA Fencing Under 19 Division (Junior).


    “I couldn’t be more  excited and honored to be competing as a member of Team USA, especially  in London because my mother’s home country is England. For nine years, I  have been working toward this goal with the amazing support and  sacrifice of my parents to whom I’m eternally grateful. I’m also  grateful to The Dwight School, which helped me to achieve my dream of  competing in the Olympics by allowing me the time and flexibility to  train, travel the world, and compete while I was a student,” said Mr.  Imboden.
