Sandra SassinePlease note: the information below is accurate as of the London 2012 Olympic Games and will be updated in advance of the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Fencer Sandra Sassine was once told by her coach and father Henri “Sandra, if you work hard, if you get all the tools you need, one day you’ll go to the Olympics.”  She made his prediction come true by competing at Beijing 2008, highlighted by a seventh place finish in the team sabre.  Four years later at London 2012 she cracked the top-20 in the individual sabre.

Sassine qualified for the 2012 Olympic Team after winning her ninth national title.  She had earlier won individual bronze at the 2012 Pan American Championships.  That followed up back-to-back individual silver medals at the 2010 and 2011 Pan American Championships.  She had previously won team bronze medals at the 2008 and 2009 Pan American Championships as well as an individual bronze and team silver at the 2007 Pan American Championships.
