Fencer Profile

CARROLL, Alex

When and Where Born:
1985

City of Residence:
Newport, Australia

When and Why they started fencing:
I started fencing in 1993 at the Williamstown Fencing Club when I was nine years old. My first coach was Sue Shahin who introduced me to the foil and gave me individual lessons for about one year. I moved to Helen Smith who was foil my coach for six years until I changed to sabre, and Pieter Leeuwenburgh, in 2002. Helen continues to fill the role of mentor.

My mum first considered the sport of fencing because she thought it suited my personality. She also wanted to find a sport that promoted self-discipline and would provide a sound environment for the development of responsibility, independence and sportsmanship.
