StatusOlympic
LocationLa Grande Salle des Fêtes de l'Exposition, Champs de Mars, Paris
Participants54 from 10 countries

There were 54 fencers from 10 nations but 39 of them were from France. There were several rounds that qualified 16 fencers for the semi-finals. They consisted of individual bouts among the fencers, but a jury decided on who would advance, rather than going strictly by the results of matches. In the semi-finals and finals, round-robin pools were conducted, and here the match results did determine the placements. The semi-finals consisted of two pools of eight fencers each, with the top four in each pool advancing to the final. France’s Émile Coste won this event by winning 6 of his 7 matches in the final pool. Henri Masson was second with 5 wins and 2 losses. There were also a consolation pool of the semi-finalists that did not make the final pool, so that the fencers were ranked from 1-16 based on the final and consolation pools.
