Massialas will be competing for his third Olympic team as part of Team USA this summer at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
At the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Massialas made sports history. He won an individual silver medal, where he became the first American male athlete to win an individual medal in foil fencing since 1960, as well as a bronze medal in the men’s team foil competition; moreover, Massialas became the first U.S. male athlete to win two fencing medals in the same Olympic Games in over 100 years.
