Results[edit]

Round 1[edit]

The three-way tie for third place resulted in a barrage in the first pool. After each fencer went 1-1 in the barrage, touches received was used to break the tie. Cohen's 6 gave him the win over McKenzie's 7 and Elkalyoubi's 8; Cohen received third place. The tie-breaker then went back to head-to-head results between the two remaining fencers in the barrage to assign fourth place; Elkalyoubi had defeated McKenzie in their bout (and, incidentally, had defeated him in the main pool as well), so he placed fourth and advanced while McKenzie was eliminated.

Pool A
1.  Herman Sveshnikov (URS) 5-0 Q2
2.  Jean Claude Magnan (FRA) 4-1 Q2
3.  Herbert Cohen (USA) 2-3 QB

The second pool required no barrage; ties within the top four were nominally broken by touches against (15-18 in favor of Sehem in the top two places) and then touches scored (21-18 for Okawa after he and Curletto tied at 18-18 in touches against).

Round 2[edit]

Touches against were 16-16-19 to break the three-way tie for second into second/third and fourth places, with touches scored 23-22 to separate second and third.

Pool A
1.  Herman Sveshnikov (EUA) 4-1 Q3
2.  Ion Drîmbă (ROU) 3-2 Q3
3.  Witold Woyda (POL) 3-2 Q3
4.  Mario Curletto (ITA) 3-2 Q3
5.  Jozsef Gyuricza (HUN) 2-3
6.  Alexander Leckie (GBR) 0-5

Touches against broke the tie for second and third, with 14-16. Since the tie for fourth and fifth determined advancement, another bout was fenced. Tabuchi, who had won the main-pool bout, defeated Sehem again in the barrage to win a qualification spot.

Pool B
1.  Mark Midler (URS) 5-0 Q3
2.  Henry Hoskyns (GBR) 3-2 Q3
3.  Egon Franke (POL) 3-2 Q3
4.  Mostafa Sehem (EGY) 2-3 QB
 Kazuhiko Tabuchi (JPN) 2-3 QB
6.  Michael Ryan (IRL) 0-5
Barrage B
4.  Kazuhiko Tabuchi (JPN) 1-0 Q3
5.  Mostafa Sehem (EGY) 0-1

The three-way tie for first was broken by touches against (16-18-20), but the three-way tie for fourth required a barrage. Elkalyoubi, fencing in the first two bouts of the barrage, won both to clinch advancement and make a bout between Granieri and Haukler unnecessary. Their main-pool touches against (17-19) decided the fifth and sixth places.

Pool C
1.  Roland Losert (AUT) 3-2 Q3
2.  Dieter Schmitt (EUA) 3-2 Q3
3.  Victor Zhdanovich (URS) 3-2 Q3
4.  M. Elkalyoubi (EGY) 2-3 QB
 Nicola Granieri (ITA) 2-3 QB
 Stefan Haukler (ROU) 2-3 QB
Barrage C
4.  M. Elkalyoubi (EGY) 2-0 Q3
5.  Stefan Haukler (ROU) 0-1
6.  Nicola Granieri (ITA) 0-1

A three-way tie for third place required a barrage, with two fencers advancing and the third eliminated. Cohen, who had beaten Muresan but lost to Mano in the main pool, won both of his barrage bouts to take third place. Mano defeated Muresan in the other barrage bout to revenge his loss in the main pool and take fourth, qualifying for the third round.

Pool D
1.  Tim Gerreshim (EUA) 5-0 Q3
2.  Daniel Revenu (FRA) 3-2 Q3
3.  Herbert Cohen (USA) 2-3 QB
 Kazuo Mano (JPN) 2-3 QB
 Tanase Mureson (ROU) 2-3 QB
6.  Pasquale la Ragione (ITA) 1-4
Barrage D
3.  Herbert Cohen (USA) 2-0 Q3
4.  Kazuo Mano (JPN) 1-1 Q3
5.  Tanase Mureson (ROU) 0-2

The fifth pool resulted in a four-way tie for third place, out of which two fencers would advance and two would be eliminated. The barrage resulted in two fencers going 2-1 to advance (with Jay's 20-21 edge in main-pool touches against giving him third place) and two going 1-2 (Parulski took fifth with 19 touches against in the main pool to Courtillat's 21) to be knocked out.

Pool E
1.  Albert Axelrod (USA) 4-1 Q3
2.  Sando Szabor (HUN) 3-2 Q3
3.  Jacky Courtillat (FRA) 2-3 QB
 Allan Jay (GBR) 2-3 QB
 Nasser Madani (IRI) 2-3 QB
 Ryszard Parulski (POL) 2-3 QB
Barrage E
3.  Allan Jay (GBR) 2-1 Q3
4.  Nasser Madani (IRI) 2-1 Q3
5.  Ryszard Parulski (POL) 1-2
6.  Jacky Courtillat (FRA) 1-2

Since the three-way tie for second didn't matter for qualification, it was broken by touches against. Magnan's 13 gave him second place, while Brecht and Kamuti were still tied at 17. They maintained their tie even through touches scored at 20, so both received third place in the pool.

Pool F
1.  Heisaburō Ōkawa (JPN) 4-1 Q3
2.  Jean Claude Magnan (FRA) 3-2 Q3
3.  Julius Brecht (EUA) 3-2 Q3
 Jeno Kamuti (HUN) 3-2 Q3
5.  Sameh Abdelrahman (EGY) 2-3
6.  Ignacio Posada (COL) 0-5
