USA's gold medal winner Mariel Zagunis is flanked by silver medal winner Sada Jacobson, left, and bronze medal winner Becca Ward, right, on the podium after the women's individual saber at the Fencing Hall of the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Saturday, Aug. 9, 2008.

Ware, an incoming freshmen at Duke, was the #2 seed in the tournament only to be upset by the #5 seed – the eventual gold medal winner Zagunis. Both girls are Oregonians (where fencing is big?) and members of the same fencing club.

Duke obviously has a soft spot for the beaver state which also produced basketball star Kyle Singler.
