Race is a two-time Olympian foil fencer and Olympic bronze medalist. Race Imboden made his international competition debut at the age of 16, winning a bronze medal at the 2010 World Fencing Championships. Since then, he’s won over 50 medals across team and individual competitions, including bronze at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Race was the First American Male to win the Fencing FIE World Cup and led Team USA to a historic first-ever World Championship Title in 2019.
In this conversation, Race and Michael discuss being the dude and how that lends to being your own roadblock, honing your craft, searching for knowledge but not always direction, trusting your gut, and how important it is to find the ability to celebrate the moments leading up to the wins in life, rather than only focusing on the wins themselves.
I'm so honored to have had the opportunity to have this conversation with a World Champion and hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did.
