ITHACA, N.Y. -- For the second straight year, Cornell head fencing coach Iryna Dolgikh has been chosen to coach the US National Veteran's Fencing Team, as it prepares for the World Championship.

"This is again a great honor and I am very thankful to the United States Fencing Association for giving me this opportunity,” said Dolgikh. “Last year when I went to the World Championships I had a chance to meet many coaches and tell them about the Cornell fencing program. It is a fantastic opportunity for me to shine some light on our great athletic program at Cornell, which improves the reputation of our growing fencing program”

The team will travel to Porec, Croatia for the tournament, which takes place from Sept. 27 – Oct. 4, 2010.
