On the middle of an era of total domination of this weapon by an overwhelming superior Hungarian team, the only question to be asked was whether Italy could mount a challenge to the mighty Magyars. The answer, perhaps unsurprisingly, was no.

The Hungarians won 106 of their 122 bouts as their six-man team, which included fencers who had won or would go to win 30 Olympic medals, convincingly retained their Olympic title.

Italy and Germany won silver and bronze respectively.
