Aron Szilagyi Szilagyi Wins Fencing Sabre Gold - London 2012 Olympics

Full highlights of Hungary's Aron Szilagyi's Gold medal win against Italy's Diego Occhiuzzi in the Men's Fencing Sabre at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Fencing was included for the first time at the 1896 Games in Athens, and has remained on the Olympic programme since then. The women's fencing competition entered the Games in 1924 in Paris. Today, men and women compete in individual and team events, in which three types of weapon are used: foil, epee and sabre. The foil was, at first, the only weapon used by women, until the 1996 Games in Atlanta, when women's epee was introduced. Women's sabre appeared for the first time on the Olympic programme in Athens in 2004.

Fencing Highlights: All Weapon Compilation

I've done a video highlighting the awesomeness of Foil. This celebrates all 3 weapons with some darn good hits!!!

The Physics and Speed of Fencing

► CLICK for more fencing stories on redbull.com:
How much do you know about fencing? For most people, it's not much – a few seconds of quick moves, and a winner declared on the scoreboard. The speed of attacks and hits is so fast – it's quite hard to follow with an untutored eye.

Ukrainian fencer Olga Kharlan not only understands what's happening in those seconds, but also excels at scoring winning hits. Fencing isn't about force. Rather, the ability to choose the right position and distance is the key. The faster fencer will 'step-lunge', which offers more chances to land a hit first. The speed of this move made by professional athletes can be compared to the acceleration of a race car.

What if we put Kharlan next to Alexander Grinchuk’s 600hp #RedBull350z, which accelerates up to 100km in four seconds, on the starting line? You'd be surprised to see who's faster.

Expert Saber Sparring: Lee Smith vs Richard Marsden

Their next fight:

Impressive fighting skills at work. There is a reason why these guys teach historical swordsmanship.

This match took place at the Blood & Iron historical martial arts school in New Westminster, BC, Canada. Richard Marsden, co-founder and principal instructor of the Phoenix Society of Historical Swordsmanship, came for a visit to give two seminars, one on Fiore's longsword and another on Polish saber fencing. After the instruction he sparred with Lee Smith, co-founder and principal instructor of Blood & Iron.
