As we say goodbye to the Olympics of 2012, I leave you with a last look at a sport that is all style. 
While fencing did not get the attention of such sports as swimming, track & field and gymnastics, 
the photographs of the competition were some of the most beautiful of the games.  The costume of 
the white uniforms, choreography of the movement, and drama of the black backdrop give the 
images a cinematic effect, almost like movie stills from a new Star Wars prequel.
