Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

The European Games are the biggest competition any Icelandic fencer has competed in. Thorbjorg tried several sports before truly finding herself in fencing at 14 and she has never looked back. She has travelled the world and fenced in World Cups for the last 14 years as well as taking part in World and European championships. Thorbjorg is very excited for Baku 2015 as she missed qualifying for London 2012. Thorbjorg relocated to the UK in 2013 to do a PhD in volcano seismology at the University of Cambridge. She has closely observed several eruptions.
