In 2003, after a six year career as one of the top fencers in the United States, Jasmine McGlade stopped competing on the national and international circuit in order to focus on her studies at Harvard University and fencing at the collegiate level. While at Harvard Jasmine helped her team win the Division I NCAA Championship title, the first in Harvard fencing history. In 2007 Jasmine retired from fencing altogether. Or so she thought.

 

In early 2013 Jasmine returned to fencing with renewed determination in spite of the many challenges of returning to elite athletics after many years away from training and competing. Upon her return she was invited to train at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs as a training partner for the U.S. Modern Pentathlon team.

 

In April 2014 Jasmine medalled at the Division 1 National Championships in Minneapolis, MN, and in June she became the Division 1A National Champion at the 2014 USA National Fencing Championships in Columbus, Ohio. She returned to Senior World Cup competition, the highest level of international fencing competition, in November when she was selected to compete in Xuzhou, China. Since then she has been selected to compete at additional World Cups and Grand Prixs and once again medalled at the 2015 Division 1 National Championships in Reno, Nevada. In late 2015 Jasmine's competitive fencing career ended due to serious injury.
