Some more photographic fencing highlights

Full set here: click these samples for larger versions.
Full-speed attack on Halsted by Rigine

Victory for Halsted: defeat for Rigine

Halsted's delight. He finished 30th.

Pranz (Austria) scores against Szabados (Hungary)

Not quite orthodox but very dramatic: Pranz gets through Szabados's defence

And again

Szabados's attack fails

Fleche attack from Delbergue (Spain) on a Romanian fencer

Simultaneous hits, simultaneous appeals to the referee

Delbergue manages to land a hit without looking!

Beautiful Delbergue flying fleche with flick to the shoulder beats his opponent's parry

Thank you for these beautiful and sometimes dramatic pictures. The last one is particularly impressive!
