I first picked up an Epee when I was 13 years old. Having competed as a swimmer for many years, I wanted to try Modern Pentathlon. I signed up for the South West Championships; I had two quick lessons before the Championships. Unsurprisingly, in the fencing phase, I came dead last; but I was hooked!
After continuing to fence as part of a multi sport for a few years, at 17, I dropped the other sports and started to focus on fencing. Within two years I made the GB Under 20 squad and within three years I was competing on the Senior GB squad.
I train six days a week; It would be seven but rest is important! My training involves many aspects as fencing alone causes muscle development to be uneven. Which in the long run, can cause injury. A typical week involves; yoga, swimming, running, rowing, sparring, individual lessons, footwork practice, weights and a lot of stretching. Mental training is also very important within the sport so meditation is also a large part of my practice.
My goal is compete at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Work hard. Train hard. Fight easy.
