2016 Rio Olympics Fencing Schedule

The 2016 Rio Olympics fencing schedule will take place between August 6th and 14th, 2016. The events will be held at the Carioca Arena 3 located inside of Barra Olympic Park in Barra da Tijuca. There will be a total of 212 fencers taking place in the competition with an equal distribution between men’s and women’s competitors during the 2016 games. There are a total of six Individual and four Team events for the competition for a total of 10 events up for medals. Very similar to the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, the International Fencing Federation will continue their format of events on a rotational system with the women’s Team Foil and men’s Team sabre events taking the 2016 Rio Games off. All of the start times for the fencing competition are listed in local Brazil time.
