Local Olympian to be inducted into Fencing Hall of Fame

It was a very special honor for one of our local Olympians Saturday afternoon.

Iris Zimmermann is a veteran of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. But she's also a local business owner and is the newest member of the Fencing Hall of Fame.

County Executive Maggie Brooks joined Zimmermann at her business, the Rochester Fencing Club, as she proclaimed this Saturday as Iris Zimmermann Day.

Brooks recognized Zimmermann's accomplishments in fencing and her hard work in giving back to the Rochester community.

She will be inducted into the Fencing Hall of Fame next Saturday.
