LocationLa Grande Salle des Fêtes de l'Exposition, Champs de Mars, Paris
Participants61 from 7 countries

Fencing masters events were contested among teaching professionals, and fencing was the only sport that allowed professionals in the early days of the Olympics. This event was only on the Olympic Program in 1896 and 1900. There were 61 competitors from seven nations, but most of them were French, with 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. In the final Lucien Mérignac and Alphonse Kirchhoffer tied with 6 wins and 1 loss, and fought a barrage to determine the title, which went to Mérignac. Third-place was also tied with Italy’s Antonio Conte and France’s Jean-Baptiste Mimiague both with 4 wins and 3 losses, with Mimiague taking third on a barrage victory over Conte.
