Stefano Cerioni had won an Olympic title in the team event at Los Angeles but had endured a difficult time since. A fencer with a fiery temperament, he had incurred the wrath of the Fédération Internationale d’Escrime after losing his temper at the judges at the 1986 World Championship and was given a 15-month ban for his behaviour. After an impressive series of results in the pool stages he suffered a shock defeat in the first knockout round and had to fight through the repechage to stay in medal contention. The Italian defeated World Champion Matthias Gey of West Germany and former World Champion Aleksandr Romankov of the USSR to reach the final where he would face, and defeat, Udo Wagner, the first Olympic finalist from the German Democratic Republic. Cerioni competed at two further Olympics and was a valued member of the Italian team for the next decade but this was his only major success as an individual.
