Sport presentation

A combat sport contested by two opponents called fencers. Competitors attempt to score points by making contact with their opponent’s target area using the tip or blade of a duelling sword (cutting and thrusting attacks) without being hit themselves. The fencer with the most hits to their opponent’s target area wins the assault. Three types of duelling swords are used in fencing: the epee, the sabre, and the foil. Fencing is a traditional sport and is contested in white clothing and equipment, including a mask and gloves that protect the wearer. Assaults are overseen either by a referee, who uses an electrical scoring apparatus to judge the validity of hits, or by four judges in lieu of the electrical scoring apparatus.
