In 1920 and 1924 the team sabre gold medal had been won by Italy, but these would be the only two times between 1908 and 1960 that Hungary did not win this event. The final came down to Hungary and Italy, with the Magyars triumphing, 9-7, for the gold medal. The bronze medal went to Poland, who defeated Germany, 9-7. Two members of the Hungarian gold medal team, [Attila Petschauer] and [JÃ¡nos Garay], would later die in Nazi concentration camps.
