Answer: More than we do in the USA!
A National Team fencer in Hong Kong makes the equivalent of 4-5 thousand dollars a month, plus food, travel and an additional $150 dollars per diem on days when they’re traveling or competing.
My source of information was from a nice up and coming fencer from Hong Kong named Jackson Wang. We chatted with him during the Thailand world cup. Jackson fences Saber for the Hong Kong Junior team and he’ll also be competing in the upcoming World Youth Olympics. (Good luck!)
Always interesting to hear how other countries athlete training programs work!
