Diamond Swapped Fencing For Singing

Published on June 23, 2008 with No Comments

Singer Neil Diamond ditched the chance to pursue a career as a professional fencer to take up music.

The star was so successful at the sport he won a full college scholarship granting him a free education, but he turned his back as soon as he landed the opportunity to pursue fame and fortune as a singer.

Diamond revealed: “I fell in love with the sport. We were city champions. I was scouted by colleges. New York University offered me a scholarship and I got free education.”
