Team USA fencer Ibtihaj

Ibtihaj Muhammad is a Team USA fencer competing in the London Olympic trials.

Insha’Allah she surpasses her goals.

She was born and raised in Maplewood. She’s a Columbia grad, a few years younger than the class of 2000.

In December 2011/January 2012 More Magazine wrote a feature on her and two other women they hope go for gold in the London Olympics. The article features Houston based boxer Marleen Esparza, swimmer Janet Evans, and fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad.

Ibtiaj has many accolades including being a three-time NCAA All American (2004, 2005 & 2006).

She’s won in fencing at the Junior Olympic level, and is well-known for her talent locally.

She is on the Team USA website (wwwusfencing.org). Read her profile.
