    Pinecrest 8th grader Ethan Tam represented Olympic Fencers Club, participating in a fencing tournament in the Y-14 Mixed Epee category at the Georgia Games event on October 3.  Ethan got his first silver medal as a young fencer in his event.
    Georgia Games exists to encourage involvement in amateur sports. The Georgia State Games administers the annual Georgia Games Championships, an Olympic-style multi-sport festival.  Known as the “People’s Games,” these Championships are open to Georgians of all ages and skill levels. The Georgia State Games was created in 1989 as part of the effort to win the bid to host the 1996 Olympic Games.
    Ethan is really looking forward to next year when he enters high school and be able to officially represent as a Paladins fencer to compete with other high school fencing clubs.  
    Interestingly, Ethan’s dad, Tan Tam, used to participate at this festival in the outdoor volleyball event years ago.  His team won a few times in their age group.
