Carole Vergne (born August 7, 1985 in Saint-Malo, Ille-et-Vilaine) is a French sabre fencer.[1] She won two medals, silver and bronze, in the same weapon at the 2009 World Fencing Championships in Antalya, Turkey.[2][3]

Vergne represented France at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where she competed in two sabre events. For her first event, the women's individual sabre, Vergne received a bye for the preliminary round of thirty-two, before losing out to South Korea's Kim Keum-Hwa, with a sudden death score of 14–15.[4] Few days later, she joined with her fellow fencers and teammates Solenn Mary, Léonore Perrus, and Anne-Lise Touya for the women's team sabre. Vergne and her team, however, lost the bronze medal match to the U.S. team (led by Mariel Zagunis), with a total score of 38 touches.[5]
