What's missing from Olympic fencing? Inigo Montoya

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” says Inigo Montoya in the Princess Bride. Joe Posnanski, writing on JoeBlog about the 2012 Olympic Games, laments that there was not more Inigo Montoya in the competition.

This is the year of archery. With the popularity of the Hunger Games and Brave, more people watched Olympic archery than basketball. Posnanski believes that fencing should have the same appeal, especially after the influence of filmdom's swashbuckling heroes.
