Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? She took up the sport under Christian Rascioni at the Gemina Scherma club in San Giorgio di Nogaro, Italy.

Why this sport? "The first time I discovered fencing was thanks to [Italian sabre fencer] Aldo Montano's victory at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. I was sitting on the sofa at home with my father and I was watching the final. After a few weeks, thanks to a simple flyer at school, I recognised the sport and back home I immediately begged my mother to let me try it. It was love at first sight."
