Tim Morehouse is a force to be reckoned with in the fencing world, having won a silver medal in the men's sabre at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and is competing in the 2012 London Olympics. A New York City native, graduate of Brandeis University, founder of the non-profit Fencing-in-the-Schools Foundation and author of American Fencer: Modern Lessons from an Ancient Sport, Morehouse also taught U.S. President Barack Obama how to fence on the White House lawn in 2009. Here, Crane.tv catches up with the talented athlete at the University of East London (UEL) where the all-American Olympians are training. He tells us about the history of fencing, not being a "typical Olympian prodigy" and the different schools of the beautiful sport. www.timmorehouse.com
