Personal:

Barron was a member of the 4th place US Men's Saber Team event at the 2008 Junior World Championship... He started fencing at 10 years old when he attended a summer fencing camp... Barron lists winning the silver medal at the 2009 World Junior Cup in Budapest as his favorite fencing memory because it is considered one of the most difficult World Cups... Dmitriy Guy, Barron's coach, has been most influential in his career because Dmitriy has taught him how to be a better competitor...People would be surprised to know he listens to the "oldies."
