Sofia Pozdniakova BioGraphy

Sofia Stanislavovna Pozdnyakova was born on June 17, 1997 in Novosibirsk. The girl adopted her love for this sport from her father – a multiple champion of Russia, Europe and the world. As a child, Sofia was also interested in other disciplines such as aerobics and swimming. At the age of 10, Pozdnyakova began attending a sports training center for fencing in her hometown, and the first lessons for a talented girl were taught by coach Sergei Nikolaevich Stepankin. The future champion received her education at the Smolensk State Academy of Physical Culture, Sports and Tourism, planning to get the profession of a sports journalist in the future.

The Novosibirsk fencer Sofia  became the world champion for the second time. The 22-year-old saber fencer follows in the footsteps of her illustrious father. Stanislav Pozdnyakov is a four-time Olympic champion in fencing, currently the president of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) and the European Fencing Confederation.


At the World Championships in Budapest (Hungary), the Siberian woman won the title in the team competition. As part of the Russian national team, a pupil of the Novosibirsk fencing school performed together with Sophia Velikaya, Yana Yegoryan and Olga Nikitina. In the final, our saber fencers broke the resistance of the athletes from France (45:40). Thus, Sofia, to some extent, “avenged” her younger sister, who suffered from the “tricolors” this summer.

The second daughter of the famous saber fencer Anna chose another sport – basketball. In June, she took part in the II European Games in Minsk. Unfortunately, the Russian national 3v3 basketball team, whose colors were defended by an 18-year-old girl, did not perform well. In the quarterfinals, our compatriots lost to the French (13:20), who eventually became champions.

We add that at last year’s World Championship, she also became the first, but in the individual tournament. Then the Russians took the entire podium. The 2016 Olympic champions Sofia Velikaya and Yana Yegoryan, respectively, are on the second and third steps of the podium. In team competitions, our team took silver. In addition, the native of Novosibirsk twice became the European champion in the command saber – in 2018 and 2019.

As a child, the Pozdnyakov sisters went in for swimming. However, then the eldest made a choice in favor of her father’s sports and at the age of 14 she fulfilled the standard of a master of sports. As we can see now, the girl was clearly right. If nothing unexpected happens, she will defend the honor of Russia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Earlier, the fencer also announced her desire to become a sports journalist, but, apparently, after she hangs the saber on a nail.


On September 26, 2020, she officially formalized relations with a Saratov resident Konstantin Lokhanov. The couple came together on the basis of a common hobby for fencing. The wedding was played in Moscow, and the newly made husband and wife happily posed for a photo and shared some of them on Instagram.
