On July 30, 2012, Monday Google shows the Doodle "London 2012 Fencing". This is the Fourth Doodle for the London 2012 Summer Olympics.
Fencing competitions at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London are happening from 28 July to 5 August at ExCeL Exhibition Centre.
Maria Valentina Vezzali is the first fencer in Olympic history to win three Individual Foil gold medals at three consecutive Olympics.
Although sword fighting dates back thousands of years, Fencing as we now understand it really came of age as a sport in the 19th century.
Fencing has been contested at every Summer Olympic Games since the birth of the modern Olympic movement at the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens. Women's foil made its Olympic debut in Paris, during the 1924 Olympic Games. There are three forms of Olympic fencing: Foil — a light thrusting weapon; the valid target is restricted to the torso; double touches are not allowed. Épée — a heavy thrusting weapon; the valid target area covers the entire body; double touches are allowed. Sabre — a light cutting and thrusting weapon; the valid target area includes almost everything above the waist (excluding the back of the head and the hands); double touches are not allowed.
Fencing takes place on a piste, 14 metres long and between 1.5m and 2m wide. All 10 medal events on the Fencing programme are run in a knockout format.
Fencing is a fast, tense sport. Fencers must use all their wits and quick thinking to outmanoeuvre their opponent, judging the right time and the most effective way to attack.
