Born and raised in Los Angeles Gerard was always active in sports and he was first introduced to fencing by acting as a sparring partner for his brother. In 1981, he was shot in the chest during a robbery in his home and spent the next 6 months in hospital and was paralyzed from his waist down. Slowly, Gerard got back into sports; first with wheelchair tennis and then off-road wheelchair racing in which he won national titles. In 1996, Gerard began his return to fencing by competing in sabre and foil. Since then he has competed in four World Championships and 4 Paralympic Games (Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London). Gerard is currently ranked #1 in the United States and #13 world-wide.
