Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing at school in 2008.
Why this sport? "I tried it out because I hadn't yet found a sport I loved. What initially drew me to it was the whole mental game of working out your opponents. [When I started training] with [coach] Antonio Signorello at the end of 2009, is when I really fell in love with the sport."
Club / Team Sydney University Fencing Club: Australia
Name of coach Antonio Signorello [national], ITA, from 2010

General Interest

Memorable sporting achievement Reaching the quarterfinals of the 2015 Asian Championships in Singapore. (rio2016.olympics.com.au, 11 Dec 2015)
Hero / Idol Italian fencer Andrea Cassara. (rio2016.olympics.com.au, 11 Dec 2015)
Awards and honours He was named the 2015 Fencer of the Year in New South Wales, Australia. (sydneyacademyoffencing.net, 25 Jan 2016)
Ambitions To finish consistently in the top 32 at World Cup and world championship level, and compete at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. (corporate.olympics.com.au, 01 Aug 2017; rio2016.olympics.com.au, 06 Nov 2015)
Other information NOTABLE RESULT
He finished 21st in men's foil at the 2017 World Championships in Leipzig, Germany, which was the best result achieved by any Australian fencer at a senior world championship since 2003. (corporate.olympics.com.au, 01 Aug 2017; sufc.org.au, 24 Jul 2017)

STUDYING ABROAD
During his double degree in commerce and engineering, he studied for a semester in Beijing, People's Republic of China, at the Tsinghua University. He expects to graduate in 2019. (Linkedin profile, 01 Feb 2018; corporate.olympics.com.au, 14 Dec 2017)
Sporting philosophy / motto "Two things cripple Australian fencing, the fact that we aren't professional athletes like most competitors who train essentially full-time, and have their travel and training expenses fully covered. And it's hard to find strong opponents to improve against due to our geographic isolation. I can't help these, but I can ensure that I try and train harder and smarter in the time I do have. In the end, the fact that I love what I'm doing, while others treat it like a job, may end up making the difference." (corporate.olympics.com.au, 06 Nov 2015)
