American modern pentathlete from Somerset, Pennsylvania, currently ranked no. 56 in the world by the Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM).
Sacksen made his official debut at the 2008 Summer Olympics after receiving and accepting an invitation by UIPM, competing in the men's modern pentathlon, along with Eli Bremer. Both he and Bremer, however, struggled to attain a higher position in the early rounds of the competition, with mediocre scores in pistol shooting and a one-touch épée fencing. In the end, Sacksen finished the event in eighteenth place, with a score of 5,280 points.
He finally attained his best result in his sporting career, when he finished sixth at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, which gave him an automatic qualifying berth for the next Olympics. In the same year, Sacksen also set a world shooting record for a fourth-place finish in the mixed relay event at the World Championships in Moscow, Russia.
In April 2012, Sacksen, however, suffered a ligament injury, which was completely torn in his left ankle, at a training camp in Poland. Unable to compete at the World Championships, because of a severe ankle injury, Sacksen landed to thirty-eight place, and missed out of the national team for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
