Other information DUAL DISCIPLINE
After the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro she began competing internationally in the sabre discipline in addition to foil. "I believe that the sabre can help me a lot with the foil. I've completely changed my training as the two weapons are completely different. Sabre competitions are very fast-paced, with very fast attacks and little time between attacks. The pace is very quick, which I am not used to. It's not easy to mentally get into the match that quickly and to stay focused when everything happens so fast. But I like it, it's exciting."
