Barrage[edit]

The barrage was a round-robin among the three top finalists. Each of three had lost twice in the final round-robin, once to another of the three finalists and once to a fencer who did not place as well. Gaudin, who had lost to Casmir in the final, beat him in the barrage and notched his second head-to-head victory against Gaudini to win gold.
