Downers Grove man, former Olympic fencer finds success, struggles in distance running
DOWNERS GROVE – Last July, for the first time in his 58 years, Olympian Michael McCahey’s body wasn’t cooperating.
The Downers Grove resident broke his elbow after slipping on a wet floor, and then a week later, he fractured his leg while training for a marathon.
Few things would have been more frustrating for a man used to setting athletic goals and then pretty much always reaching them. As a 10-year-old, McCahey told his father he wanted to be on the U.S. Olympic fencing team, shorty after discovering the sport at the Chicago Athletic Club.
