The Cayman Islands Fencing Federation was recently recognised by the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee as the official governing body for the sport locally, and it’s undertaking a grass roots instructional campaign in the hope of sending a competitor to the Summer Olympics in 2024.

Logan Ryan Golema, the chairman of the Cayman Islands Fencing Federation, has spent half his life in the sport and believes it’s a great path to instilling honour, integrity and solidarity. Golema fenced at the college level, and he loves the idea of introducing the sport he loves to his new home.

“I saw the opportunity to bring a new sport to the island because fencing hasn’t been here as an Olympic sport before,” he said. “It’s something new to do. Something exciting. When I tell people we’re fencing in the Cayman Islands, they’re like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know that was happening here.’”

The federation is still in its first month as a full-time pursuit, and it has begun reaching out to many of the local schools in the hope of finding students looking for a brand new activity. Golema said he has held free demonstrations and trial lessons, and he hopes to visit Cayman Prep in October.
