This week in the lead up to World Fencing Day, USA Fencing is celebrating our Life Members, their dedication to the sport and their role in the #USAFencingFamily.
Meet Jorge Gana: Walking on to his college fencing team at Johns Hopkins University, Jorge Gana quickly became passionate about fencing. Although he had no prior experience in the sport, Gana became a team captain and won the individual University Athletic Association Championship and Temple Open in men’s epee in 1991, on his way to a top-10 senior national ranking. Now involved in fencing for more than 30 years, he is the chair of the New Jersey Division, a certified referee and a volunteer assistant coach at Christian Brothers Academy High School. He even still fences when he has the time.
Fencing has become a part of the Gana family. Gana and his wife have seven children, two of which are Life members. Gana describes that purchasing a Life membership was a great option to reflect his commitment to the sport, and was an investment for his kids, who also found a strong passion for the sport.
