WATCH: Top fencing moments from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games
The Rio Games were an opportunity for the United States to make their mark on the fencing world and while the coveted gold medal eluded them, they still found plenty of success on the piste.
U.S. women's sabre fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad made history when she became the first American representative to wear a hijab during competition.
Of course it wouldn't be the Olympics without a few upsets. None was more stunning than when 20-year-old South Korean Sangyoung Park, down several points, rallied against veteran Geza Imre of Hungary to win gold in his first Olympic appearance.
