Biography

Irene Camber-Corno started fencing after she accidentally walked into a fencing hall while intending to attend gymnastics practice. At her first Olympics, she was eliminated in the semi-final round, but she reached the final in Helsinki four years later. There she faced two-fold Olympic champion [Ilona Elek], whom she defeated 4-3 in a close match. Camber-Corno was pregnant during the Melbourne Olympics, but she returned at her home Games to win a bronze team medal in Rome. After another competition appearance in 1964, she became the national team coach for the 1972 Games, when her pupil [Antonella Ragno] took the gold. At World Championships she also took two titles - one individually (1953) and one with the Italian team (1957) - and 6 more medals. A two-time Italian champion, Camber-Corno worked at Montedison chemical corporation throughout her fencing career.
