QUEENS, N.Y. - Part Two of the three-part video web series on Daryl Homer and Dagmara Wozniak is now available on the StormTracker All-Access section of RedStormSports.com and the St. John's Red Storm Facebook page.
Get to know Homer and Wozniak before they hit the strip with Team USA at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
In part two, the London-bound duo discuss what it means to represent the United States and how an Olympic medal would stack up against their previous achievements.
Wozniak, a 23 year-old Avenel, N.J. native, will make her second-career Olympics appearance in London later this month. At the 2008 Games in Beijing, Wozniak served as a replacement athlete for the U.S. women's saber squad. She is currently ranked No. 2 in the U.S. and No. 12 in the world.
Homer, a first-time Olympian, redshirted the 2012 college season to train exclusively for the Olympics. The 21 year-old Bronx, N.Y. native is currently ranked as the No. 1 men's saber fencer in the U.S. and No. 12 in the world. His honors at St. John's include back-to-back NCAA Championships as a sophomore and junior.
