Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing at age 10.

Why this sport? His father and his older brother both competed in fencing, so he naturally followed them into the sport. "I first swam and then played tennis for four years - it was a huge passion. At the time my dad was fencing and my brother Andras had already begun. I was very impressed with the cups and medals that were brought home. There was no particular urge to get involved in the sport, but at age 10 I just took it up and it stuck with me."
