The History of Cheyenne Fencing Society

 

The Cheyenne Fencing Society and Modern Pentathlon Center was founded in 1981 by current owner, Elaine Cheris.  After many successful years on the U.S. Fencing team and U.S. Olympic Fencing team, Elaine wanted to share this wonderful sport with those around her.

 

The goal was to create a place where everyone could learn the sport of fencing from beginners, to adults looking for recreation, to aspiring Olympic athletes. We encourage recreational participation as well as those looking for a competitive outlet. We welcome anyone who wants to come down and watch this fascinating sport!

 

Growing up, Elaine was a collegiate track star and accomplished swimmer.  Unfortunately, during those times women did not have a lot of access into the world of pentathlon, so Elaine's career as a pentathlete was cut short. She has now dedicated many years of service to the promotion of pentathlon in the U.S.A. and works hard to ensure that anyone wishing to pursue the sport does not face the same challenges she faced.
