Career

A restless child, Chen enjoyed many different sports. He took up fencing at age 13 after his parents had him try different options for the summer holidays. He created a surprise in the 2014 Junior World Championships at Plovdiv by defeating in the semi-final Alexander Massialas of the United States, then Alexander Choupenitch of the Czech Republic. The same year Chen won the silver medal at the 2014 Asian Fencing Championships in Suwon. In the World Championships at Kazan he was defeated in the second round by Aleksey Cheremisinov, who eventually won the gold medal. In the team event, No.5 seed China defeated Egypt, the United States and Italy to meet France in the final. They were overcome 25-45 and came away with the silver medal.
