THE BRONX - A Bronx native is gearing up for the 2012 Olympic games.

Raised in Riverdale, Tim Morehouse is heading to London for his third Olympics with Team USA in fencing. In Beijing, he helped the U.S. win a silver medal in men's fencing for the first time in about a quarter of a century.

Morehouse hosted a fundraiser in Manhattan Tuesday for his nonprofit Fencing in the Schools. He also signed copies of his new book and said he's ready to bring back the gold this time around.
