1. Favourite non-fencing sport?

Kung-fu. Sometimes you need to resort to fists when you lose your weapon.

2. Which Marvel or DC superhero/villain are you?

Rogue from the X-Men. She is hardcore, and her ability to suck the life force out of people
ensures that she has a back-up when her fencing bouts don’t go her way! 🙂

3. What was your most difficult moment in fencing and why?

Learning to lunge further without losing my balance and falling over. Still a work in progress.

4. If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?

Bring back the extinct megafauna of the planet. It is sad to know we live in a world without a
moa, argentavis, glyptodon or procoptodon:-(

5. Favourite food for fencing

Bananas. They are easy to store, quick to eat, and ensure you’re full of energy for the next
bout.
