About Galya Pundyk

Galya’s professional saber career began in 2007 when she helped the Ukranian National Team win a silver medal at the 2007 World Championships in St. Petersburg. The following year, the team won gold at the Beijing Olympics. Pundyk continued to fence for this team until 2016 and, in the process, became a two-time gold and three-time silver World Champion. In addition, she has taught fencing and fitness to youth, cadet and junior fencers in Ukraine.

“Galya is a wonderful coach, both in practice and at competitions. All of the observations she makes and notes gives are specific and focused. She shifts her approach to coach depending on what is most beneficial to each of her students. Without Galya, I wouldn’t have made it to NCAA Championships for the first time my final year in college. Even in high-stress situations, she maintains a sense of calm and puts her fencers at ease — something that is both rare and needed at a competitive level.”
