Stern was a member of the French fencing team at the 1908 London Olympics and competed in both the team and individual epee events. During the Games, the French team defeated Denmark (10-6), Great Britain (12-5), and Belgium (9-7) to capture the gold medal (Stern only competed against Denmark). One of his teammates on the French team was Alexandre Lippman.
In the individual competition at the 1908 Games, Stern won his first-round pool, and advanced to the semifinals by finishing second in his second round pool. He was then eliminated in the semifinals after finishing fifth in his pool (the top four advanced to the final), and officially finished in 12th place.
