LONDON -- Two Ohio State students are headed to London to try for a medal in fencing. Zain Shaito and his little sister Mona Shaito will be competing for their father's homeland of Lebanon.
The country on the verge of civil war is in need of a bright spot according to Zain.
The Shaitos road to the Olympics began at their kitchen table where they fenced in the house with anything they could find.
Mona Shaito lost in the Round of 32 in London. Zain will compete on July 31.
