Medal Bound & TEAM USA Fencing
Medal Bound is a non-profit that was created by Lorenzo to fill a void for Olympic-bound athletes in athletic care and development. Too often, many amateur athletes do not have the resources to allow for optimal performance. In 2005, the journey began helping 8 Olympic-bound fencers. This involved treatments, training programs, nutritional planning and traveling internationally over the course of 3 years leading to the Beijing Olympics. Medal Bound provides both financial and professional resources, and assist these athletes in realizing their Olympic dream.
