3 times U.S. foil champion
 



Felicia is a two-time Olympian and the first U.S. fencer to achieve the World Cup overall championship in the under-20 category. She was the first and only woman to win NCAA championships in both foil and epee while she attended Stanford.   Ms. Zimmermann won the US National Foil title 4 times.  (1993, 1996, 1999, 2000)  Only 2 women in American fencing history have topped that.

She competed in Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000. The U.S. women just missed medaling in the 2000 team event, settling for fourth place. The following year, she helped the team earn a bronze at the world championships — a first for the U.S.

 

Zimmermann began training at Rochester Fencing Club as an 8-year-old . Her gold medal in Italy in 1993 was the first by a U.S. woman at the Junior World Cup.



Felicia Zimmermann was the first woman to win both the foil (1998) and epee (1999) at the NCAA Championships.
