General Interest

Injuries In July 2015 she sustained a stress fracture to her shin bone. She competed with the injury at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, ON, Canada, where she won silver in individual sabre and bronze in team sabre. (SportsDeskOnline, 29 Mar 2016; eluniversal.com, 22 Jul 2015)
Sporting philosophy / motto "Any sport generates discipline and values like solidarity and fellowship. But for a child, fencing is important because it also helps with reasoning, concentration, and strategy." (alejandrabenitez.com, 06 Dec 2016)
Ambitions To compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. (eluniversal.com, 22 Jul 2015)
Other information RUSSIAN TRAINING
She temporarily moved to Moscow, Russian Federation in 2016/17 in order to improve her training conditions. "I am here for the sport. I train with the Russian national team and they have a very high level of training. It is difficult because of the weather and distance, but this is the best place to train." (sputniknews.om, 07 Dec 2016)

POLITICAL CAREER
She was involved in politics in Venezuela from a young age, and was a member of the youth party of former president Hugo Chavez's United Socialist Party of Venezuela. In 2010 she served as a deputy of the national assembly for the capital Caracas, and in 2013 was appointed minister of sport under president Nicolas Maduro. "When I decided to take on my political career, I made sacrifices and left many things aside, but I never lost my focus [for sport]. I will always be Alejandra Benítez the Olympic athlete, and afterwards I am a dentist and then a politician." (alejandrabenitez.com, 2016; sputniknews.com, 07 Dec 2016)

OTHER ACTIVITIES
She founded and runs the BenitezVEN foundation, which aims to promote fencing and physical activity among children. "My first home was in the favelas of Caracas, and my work in Venezuela is based right there. For me it is neither dangerous nor complicated. My foundation promotes our sport by organising fencing exhibitions for the children. We set up a piste and allow them to play. We also bring clothes and food. Sport is always good for children. I want to help them realise all the good things that fencing can bring them."
