Sabre, Individual, Men

Date19 – 25 June 1900
LocationLa Grande Salle des Fêtes de l'Exposition, Champs de Mars, Paris
Participants23 from 7 countries

Documentation about the target area that was used for sabre in the 1900 Olympics is not known but since the 1896 Olympics used the target area specified by The Society for the Encouragement of Fencing in Paris, it is assumed that the Olympics actually held in Paris four years later used the same target area (i.e., the entire body including the lower torso and legs).

This had the smallest entry list of any of the fencing events in 1900, with only 23 starters from 7 nations, although it was most international fencing event in Paris, as only 10 of the starters were French. There was an opening round about which we know nothing, followed by a semi-final with two pools of eight fencers, with the top four in each advancing to a round-robin final pool of eight. The top two places still went to French fencers, with Georges, Count de la Falaise winning 6 of 7 bouts, and Léon Thiébaut losing only two matches. Count de la Falaise also competed at the 1906 and 1908 Olympics, winning gold in 1906 in individual and team épée. Thiébaut never again competed at the Olympics but did compete with all three weapons at Paris in 1900.
