With the Olympics in Rio just days away, we have decided that it’s time to get to know some of the American athletes that you will be watching. Sure you already know Carmelo Anthony, Klay Thompson and DeAndre Jordan, but what about those volleyball players, gymnasts, and swimmers who you’ve never heard of. They deserve just as much love and affection as the professional basketball players and Michael Phelps.
Today the spotlight is on our fencing team and specifically on Nzingha Prescod. This is her second time representing our nation in the Olympics as she also qualified for 2012 Olympics in London. She previously won the bronze medal at the Senior World Championships for fencing in 2015. Recently, she was featured in the newest edition of ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue.
Prescod graduated from Columbia University in 2015, so she is just as smart as she is talented (and attractive). Take a look at the beautiful young lady that will be making our country proud.
