Summary

The French team were the 1951 team World Champions so it was a major shock to see all three French fencers eliminated before the final pool. The individual champion at those championships was Italy’s Edoardo Mangiarotti.

Edoardo, together with brother Dario , made it easily to the final and went on to win his only individual Olympic gold of a 24-year, 13-medal career. Dario won a barrage for the silver medal to complete a rare sibling 1-2 whilst Oswald Zappelli of Switzerland repeated his bronze medal performance of 1952. The unfortunate Léon Buck placed fourth as he had done as part of the Luxembourg team.
