NEW YORK, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- For an Olympian, it's not every day that you have the opportunity to show the value of your sport to the world.
This day is fast approaching as Olympic Medalist Tim Morehouse prepares for the Fencing Masters on November 17, 2010. The Fencing Masters will bring internationally renowned Olympic fencing champions Aldo Montano of Italy, Nicolas Lopez of France, Tim Morehouse and Mariel Zagunis of the USA, Olga Kharlan from the Ukraine, and Team USA and Team Canada Men's Saber together to duel at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
"This event will showcase the beauty and our love for the sport of fencing by providing an unprecedented forum. In one evening we will bring together Team Europe vs. Team USA in an 8 man direct elimination event," said Morehouse, Olympic Silver Medalist and host for the Fencing Masters.
For Morehouse, leveraging relationships within the sport's elite and obtaining high profile sponsorships was the only way to make this dream a reality. "The support for this endeavor from the community and from companies like BistroMD Sport has been overwhelming," said Morehouse.
One of the goals of the NYC Fencing Masters is to help Olympic hopefuls get to that distinguished podium. One way Tim is motivating potential sponsors and donors is by showcasing his very own sponsor at the event: BistroMD Sport. Morehouse has secured a two year sponsorship from BistroMD Sport, the #1 physician designed, chef-prepared, meal delivery company. For this busy Olympic athlete, the convenience and quality of the meals delivered to his home helps him to focus on being his best for the upcoming Olympic games.
Qualifying events for the Fencing Masters will allow the winner a chance to secure a place on the 4-person US team and fence either Olympic Champion Aldo Montano or Nicolas Lopez. They have been hosted by the Royal Arts Academy, Manhattan Fencing Center, and NYAC.

One of Tim's favorite meals since he has been on the plan is picadillo with plantains. This Latin favorite is prepared with ground turkey, and mixed with finely chopped manzanillo olives, and sweet plump raisins, served with vibrant emerald green peas and savory plantain segments.
