If you were to take part in fencing you will need to have the speed because Fencers are very quick. The gear you will need is a Protective Jacket, Gloves, Plastrom, Mask, Breaches, Knickers and a Foil. Scores are only given when the tip of the sword touches your opponent’s chest, hits with the side of the blade do not count.
Aiming to win a gold medal at the Olympic games in Fencing is a lot of hard work. You will need to have the skill and technique if you really want a gold medal. Fencing isn’t my favorite sport but I would really like to try it.
