Alexandre Lyssov (Russian: Александр Лысов; born March 10, 1994 in Kaliningrad, a city historically known as Königsberg) is a Canadian Épée fencer. At the Inaugural 2010 Youth Olympics in Singapore he became first ever Canadian fencer to step onto the Olympic podium and also the only fencer from Canada who won two Olympic branded Medals
Alexandre started going for sports at age of eight and completely switched to fencing at age of eleven. Initially he received instructions in foil and practised at community oriented clubs, but looking to gain a new level, he later switched to épée and continued his training under well known fencing masters.
