Fencing - London, 2012. I must say that fencing has become more of an "airborne" sport than was practiced when I was in my prime with the Italian foil. (I won a gold medal in a NY competition.) My father put an Italian foil in my hand at age 7 & told me that I was going to learn to fence! Period. This "flying through the air" was never seen at matches in my day. The balestra lunge was considered "flashy" & boy, was your face red when it backfired!
