Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing at age nine at school.

Why this sport? His mother signed him up to participate in fencing at his school. "I played other sports like football, tennis, and cricket but I found that I really enjoyed this [fencing] the most, and that's why I stuck with it."
