Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing in 1994.
Why this sport? "Foil finds a middle ground between epee and sabre. Sabre is very fast, epee is more about patience and timing. Foil is the middle ground, where you combine all the elements of fencing, tactical and athleticism."
Club / Team FC Tauberbischofsheim: Bonn, GER
Name of coach Ulrich Schreck [national]
Training Regime He trains with the national squad at the Sportpark Nord in Bonn, Germany.

General Interest

Memorable sporting achievement Winning gold at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. (Instagram profile, 30 Jun 2017)
Injuries In 2016 he suffered a traumatic brain injury after being attacked outside a restaurant in Shanghai, People's Republic of China. He made his return to fencing in November 2016. (fechten.org, 12 Nov 2016; welt.de, 07 Jun 2016)

He missed the 2011 European Championships in Sheffield, England, due to a motorcycle accident that left him with an injured left shoulder. (sportal.de, 20 Apr 2011)
Sporting philosophy / motto "The most important thing about fencing is mental toughness, especially in decisive battles. It's just like a penalty shootout in football. It is also possible in fencing to be very successful without being the most talented, as long as you work hard." (sport1.de, 28 Apr 2010)
Other information RETIREMENT AND RETURN
In September 2012 he retired from the sport. He had been affected by the pressure of competing at an elite level, and was interested in building a career after fencing. He went on to obtain an undergraduate degree in business law and a master's degree in business administration, and began working at an accountancy firm. In 2016 he decided to pursue fencing again. (Reinische Post, 08 Feb 2016; taz.de, 03 Oct 2012; sportschau.de, 30 Sep 2012)

NATIONAL FIRST
He became the first male German fencer to win gold in individual foil at the Olympic Games, when he triumphed at the 2008 Games in Beijing. (SportsDeskOnline, 06 Jul 2017; sport1.de, 28 Apr 2010)

OTHER ACTIVITIES
He has served as a member of the International Fencing Federation [FIE] Athletes' Commission. (fie.org, 07 Oct 2017)
