Men's foil teams - Italy sweep to gold

Italy completed a clean sweep of the men's foil titles at these championships, adding the team gold to the individual cadet and junior titles by beating USA 45-34. The Italians took a decisive 8 hit lead in the 4th fight by Foconi and although the Americans fought hard the result was never really in doubt from that point and Tomasso Lari duly finished off the Italian medal charge.
