Sports always have been a big part of Alexandra’s life.
At the age of four she started doing Track and Field and at the age of nine she started doing Modern Pentathlon.
It was then that she discovered her passion for fencing as one of the five disciplines. The combination of athletics, dynamics and strategy instantly drew her interest and caught her attention. Fencing soon became one of her strongest disciplines in Modern Pentathlon.
In 2006 Alexandra finally decided to specialize in epee fencing.
In 2007 she moved to Bonn and started training with Manfred Kaspar and Dirk Schiffler who have been her coaches ever since. Continuously improving on the piste as well as in the rankings Alexandra became part of Germany’s second team in 2010.
