Viola Sbampato - Alumni

Viola Sbampato, Fencing Champion

Fencing Champion

Viola started fencing when she was 8 and started to compete when she was 10 winning her first Spanish Championship.

She said, “As I grew older, I started to train more and more. My rivals were harder to win and my trainer made me compete in upper categories. However, I continued to perform well and achieve good results and medals. "

 

"When I was 13 I moved to Argentina where I continued doing fencing and eventually, at the end of that one-year experience, I won the "Sub American Championship" only being 14 years old. 

I moved back to Madrid nearly 3 years ago, and since then I train every day 2 to 3 hours per day. I compete for Great Britain and have to fly to Truro (Cornwall) or different areas in the UK to train, or compete, nearly every weekend. This year has been my last year training for the under 17 category.”

Viola has been selected for world championships and international European competitions in places all over the world attending National competitions, Inter-School UK Competitions, European Cups, opening ceremonies, shows, two-week training camps, open demonstrations and appearing on T.V. programmes. Viola added, “I enjoy it, and I think that no one can be forced to love a sport or to practice a sport. What you need is an attitude and the motivation to never give up, even in the hardest of times. You have to be willing to sacrifice many things. At the moment I can deal with school. With a lot of organisation I can fit everything in my life perfectly; studying, training, my family and my friends.”
