Melbourne -- Retired priests and nuns from an old people's home have been fighting off old age with a new activity — fencing. About 16 residents aged over 80 from the Corpus Christi Catholic home in Melbourne, Australia have spent the past nine months learning the sport, including Sister Delores Kirby, 93. “It's very unusual at our age. It's a challenge. I'm always a bit afraid I might fall over,” Sister Delores, a retired nun from the Faithful Companions of Jesus order, said.
