The Champ Who’s Casting African Fencing in a More Positive Light

Alexandra Ndolo won silver for Germany at the World Championships in 2022. But now she’s competing for Kenya, the country of her father. And she has big plans. The first fencing schools have opened in Nairobi and some athletes have even received scholarships to do coaching courses in South Africa. Ndolo has set herself big goals for the future. From a sporting point of view, she wants to secure qualification for the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024. Having not made it for Germany, she’s hoping to succeed for Kenya. By competing for Kenya, Ndola, who has a Kenyan father and a Polish mother, wants to change that and cast African fencing in a more positive light.
