You may have noticed that Artisan Creative is pretty excited about the Olympics. It would be hard to miss!  Here are the details about our upcoming coverage of our sponsored athletes and the events.

First of all, we will be reposting our blogs about US Olympic Fencer Soren Thompson (with some updates) during the Games but that is not the only way to find out about Soren’s competition.

Although the Men’s Individual Epee competition will not be broadcast on television here in the US, NBC is livestreaming every Olympic event on their website so we don’t have to miss a minute!  The Epee competition will start at 1am on August 1st and yours truly will be reporting the results of Piste 1 through the Quarter Finals just as early as possible.

However, the rest of the Individual Epee competition starts at 9am Pacific Time and I will be there, liveblogging and Tweeting! So bookmark our blog or add us to your RSS feeds and Follow us on Twitter for real time updates on Soren Thompson and the other US fencers on August 1 at 9am!

Artisan is also sponsoring a Paralympic Fencer, Gerard Moreno, and I will be publishing a profile on Gerard on August 14th.  Gerard was just named Team Captain!

We go into these exciting days of competition with thoughts of the Olympic Creed:

“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”

Sounds like a good philosophy for just about anything. Struggle. Fight well. Take part.

Faster, Higher, Stronger.
