I am in the midst of writing a mobile application with information about this year's Olympics Fencing events.

The application will feature information about each athlete. I have already collected the names of the participants and some basic details about each of them, including photos for some.

The job here is to research more details about the participants and write a short bio (roughly 40-50 words) for each one. In addition to the bio, I will need you to find some pictures of the athlete. In some cases I will also need confirmation that they have indeed qualified for events.

Much of this information is available on the websites of each athlete's national governing fencing association e.g. USA: USFencing.org, FRA: escrime-ffe.fr

For photos and other information there is general press coverage of previous international events. Sometimes this information will be in languages other than English, therefore it's a big plus if you speak any other languages.

I don't ask for much ...
