  • Career Highlights: Kelsey is set for his third trip to the Olympics after making the Games in 2004 and 2008. With the United States failing to qualify a men’s team for Beijing, he was the only U.S. male fencer to go and finished 17th, four years after placing 19th individually and sixth in the team competition in Athens. However, an injured wrist suffered at the Doha Grand Prix in February meant Kelsey’s London bid came down to the final day of the final qualifying event. He placed 32nd in Paris to punch his ticket and join 2004 U.S. Olympian Soren Thompson, who earned the other men’s epee slot. In 2011, Kelsey earned individual gold medals at the Pan American Games and the December North American Cup and team golds at the Pan American Games and Pan American Championships. He added an individual bronze at the Pan American Championships while placing 10th at the senior world championships. An eight-time member of senior world championship teams, Kelsey was on the first U.S. men's epee team to earn a medal at the senior worlds - a silver in 2010 in Paris. A graduate of the Air Force Academy, where he earned a bachelor's degree in behavioral science, Kelsey holds the rank of 2nd Lieutenant.
