Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing in grade four of primary school.

Why this sport? His mother forced him to go to a fencing lesson. "I didn't really want to go, but my mother made me because it was run by a friend of hers and they wanted more students. But, after the class, I loved it and wanted to continue."
