Homeschooling families across the nation and around the world are watching 18-year-old homeschooler Becca Ward, of Denver, CO, as she prepares for Saturday’s fencing competition in Beijing, China.
Mary Nix’s HEM Guide to Homeschooling Resources features links to news stories, a video and photo gallery of Becca, and an online viewing opportunity.
Among the news stories:
“If Ward succeeds, it will be because she has meshed her Duke-bound brainiac side with a relentless competitive streak in a sport in which she can â€” intellectually and figuratively â€” slice and dice the competition.”
And here’s an awesome report on the opening ceremonies on Yahoo Sports:
“Fridayâ€™s Opening Ceremony was one of the few moments in the fantastical world of sports when superlatives had no shot. Brilliant. Powerful. Gripping. Take your pick. String them all together and they canâ€™t exaggerate this one.”
