Men's foil teams - Russia take bronze

Russia shrugged off the disappointment of a narrow semi-final defeat to take the bronze medal in the men's foil team event beating Korea 45-31. The Russians established a 20-9 lead by the end of the 4th fight and, despite a wobble in the 7th fight where the Koreans closed the gap to 5 points, Russia were soon back on track to claim the medal from an initial seeding of 14th.
