Participants32 from 9 countries
FormatSingle-elimination tournament.

The semi-finals of the individual épée were contested by two Frenchwomen and two Hungarians. Despite having such strength in depth neither country would contest the final in Athens with Hungary being a victim of a stunning upset by the lowly regarded Canadian team in their first match. France fell victim to the top seeded German team in the semi-final although the Germans needed a sudden death winner to achieve their victory. And so it was that Germany duly took their expected place to dispute the gold medal with the reigning World and Olympic champions from Russia in a rematch of the final of the previous year’s World Championship final. The Russian trio of Tatyana Logunova, Anna Sivkova and Oksana Yermakova all played their part in the 34-28 victory over the German team with Tatyana Logunova and Yermakova adding further gold medals to the ones they had won in Sydney.
