Lt. Calnan was a Champion swordsman, and competed in Fencing in the 1928 and 1932 Olympic Games. In Amsterdam in the 1928 Games, he won a bronze medal, which was a major upset in an era when American fencers were not usually competitive internationally. Calnan competed again in 1932 winning two team bronze medals, just a year before his death.
