Olympic Event

Fencing is an Olympic sport which is similar to sword fighting. Fencing was introduced to the Olympic Games in 1896 and is still played now. The rules of mainstream fencing were set by the sport’s international governing body.

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.
