Women’s Fencing Individual Saber
With rapier sharp wit, the Broadway hit WICKED has just swept the Women’s Fencing individual saber competition. In an excellent saber performance, Kerry Ellis took home the gold. Jayne Houdyshell and Kendra Kassebaum took the silver and bronze respectively. Wicked was favored going into the event, though it was a toss up as to which of the Broadway Olympiads would take the gold. No one lost an eye, though enthusaistic flying monkeys caused some disorder. Wicked photo by Joan Marcus.
