Olympics: Foil fencing women pull off maximum haul


(ANSA) - London, August 3 - Italy's women foil fencing
'dream team' have pulled off a maximum haul at the London
Olympics by winning the team event after taking a clean sweep of
the medals in the individual competition.
The Azzurri quartet of Elisa Di Francisca, Arianna Errigo,
Valentina Vezzali and Ilaria Salvatori cruised to a 45-31
victory over Russia in Thursday's final.
On Saturday Di Francisca came top of an all-Italian podium
in the foil fencing after beating Errigo in the final.
All-time fencing great Vezzali, who had been chasing her
fourth individual Olympic foil title, beat South Korea's Nam
Hyun-hee to claim bronze after being knocked out by Errigo in
the semis.
Vezzali, Italy's flag-carrier at the opening ceremony of
the London Games, took her Olympic medal tally up to nine,
including six golds.
