Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? She took up the sport at age nine, when her parents enrolled her in lessons at the Chevy Chase Fencing Club in Washington, DC, United States of America.
Why this sport? "I loved reading books about medieval times and I wanted to be a knight. I started fencing, I was quite terrible at it, but I loved it. I liked being alone out there on the strip, it was very appealing."
Name of coach Andrey Geva [national]

SPORTING RESEARCH
In early 2015 she and coach Zoltan Dudas began analysing video footage of 70% of all female epee fencers they expected to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. They were looking for particular movements and actions used by each athlete. The results were then logged into a spreadsheet so that Holmes and Dudas could search for trends - two steps before lunging for example - that might give her an advantage during competition. She was eventually ranked 25th in individual epee at the Games. "It's kind of like a war plan. I will literally visualise myself fencing them, visualise what actions I'll take when they do this or that. Our goal is not just to be at the Olympics but try to do the best possible," Holmes said in 2015. (SportsDeskOnline, 27 Jun 2017; washingtonpost.com, 23 Dec 2015)

BREAK FROM UNIVERSITY
In 2014 she decided to take a two-year break from her studies at Princeton University in the United States of America in order to focus on preparing for the 2016 Olympic Games. She returned after the Games and graduated in 2017. (Facebook page, 06 Jun 2017; washingtonpost.com, 23 Dec 2015)
