What I love about this sport
I love the physical and mental aspect of fencing. This is chess with muscle, every action matters. The intensity that is built up in bouts is unparallelled to anything I’ve ever done.  I love that I get to travel and meet all sorts of different people and cultures.

Ambitions
To win Olympic Gold at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio.

Training
I train 5-6 days a week during the fencing season and 3-4 days a week in the off season.

Hero
NHL Hall of Famer, Steve Yzerman.

Sporting philosophy / motto
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion’.”
Muhammad Ali
