The fencing event of the Reykjavik International Games will be Men’s & Women’s Sabre Competitions. In addition, there will be tournaments for Cadet, Junior and Youth.
The sport of fencing has been practiced for a long time in Iceland and in the middle of last century there were two fencing clubs in Reykjavik. In the sixties there was a decline in practice but in 1983 The Fencing Club of Reykjavik was revived. In 2008 the Fencing Center in Laugardalur was formally inaugurated as a Nordic Sabre Center.
Fencing transforms into a pure sport in the 19th century when duels were increasingly fought with pistols. Fencing is one of four sports which have been featured at every one of the modern Olympic Games.
