I am not writing this with a political opinion. My memory is of the athletics that didn't get to go. That memory is very personal to members of our family. Meet my sister's step-daughter, Vincent, who was part of the fencing team heading to those Olympics. Beautiful, 6ft tall Vinnie ,went on to be USFA National Champion in '84 and National Epee champion '82 '83 '84 and '86. She did make it four years later, to Los Angeles, but didn't medal.
Always a champion to us!
