Sam Sacksen (Somerset, Pa.) and Margaux Isaksen (Fayetteville, Ark.), will be competing in the mixed relay on Monday in Budapest, Hungary, against 17 other mixed teams. They will each be swimming 100 meters, fencing three touches against each team, riding a course of four jumps, and competing in the combined event with each of them doing 2x1000 meters with five targets between each run for a total of 10 targets. The mixed relay is the first of its type and is a qualifier for the world championships in China later this year where it will also be contested.
