Biography

Kerstin PALM

Kerstin Palm was the first woman to compete in seven Olympic Games, appearing at the Olympics consecutively from 1964-88. She had her best finish in 1972, placing fifth, and also made the finals in 1968, finishing sixth, and continued to place as high as 12th in 1984. During her career she represented Göteborgs Fäktklubb, Föreningen för Fäktkonstens Främjande in Stockholm, and Fäktklubb Aramis in Bjuv, and won 44 Swedish titles. These included two junior titles with foil in 1965-66, 19 senior team foil titles (1963-66, 1968, 1971-72, 1974-75, and 1978-1987), and 23 senior individual foil titles (1962-69, 1971-74, 1976-77, 1979-82, 1985-87, 2005, and 2008). In 2012 her record of competing in seven Olympics has been broken by Josefa Idem-Guerrini (ITA/canoeing) (1984-2012) with eight. The male record is 10 appearances, held by Ian Millar (CAN/equestrian).
