When and where did you begin this sport? She took up the sport at age nine at the Fencing 2000 club in Chicago, IL, United States of America.
Why this sport? She began fencing after her father Thomas saw a flier for a fencing club while in a pizza restaurant in Hyde Park, NY, United States of America. He thought it might be a good sport for Stone and the rest of his children, despite the fact that he and wife Cynthia had never fenced before.
