Biography

Jan Romary was the first American woman to compete in six Olympic Games, appearing consecutively from 1948 thru 1968. At her final Olympics, she was selected to carry the U.S. flag at the Opening Ceremony, the first time a woman was given that honor. During her career, Romary won 10 U.S. championships in foil, still a record for men or women, and won a gold medal in the women’s foil at the 1967 Pan-American Games. She later became the fencing commissioner for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.
