At the first modern Olympic Games in the summer of 1896, nine sports encompassing 43 events were played. Of those original nine, only five have appeared at every Summer Olympics since. One of those sports is fencing.
Fencing is split up into three different events based on the weapon used. There’s the foil, epee, and sabre. They each have their own set of rules, and their roots can be traced back centuries.
