Extractions: History Olympic Venues Olympic Sports Greece Today ... Information Fencing Indoor Outdoor Discontinued Olympic Sports Fencing is one of only four sports that have been featured in every modern Olympic Games, beginning in 1896. Fencing evolved from an ancient form of combat, and is practiced indoors. The fencer tries to score the total hits needed to win, while at the same time dexterously avoids being hit by the opponent. The first rules of Fencing appeared in 1474, in Spain . The first handbook describing positions, lines and parries came out in 1530. In 1537, the Academie d'Armes was founded in Paris . The foil made its debut in the 17th century: being a lighter weapon, it made exercise more pleasant. The mask became part of the fencer's equipment in 1780, to protect the face, something that had previously been considered insulting. By 1815, fencing had developed to such an extent that there was detailed literature about it. The Italians, the Hungarians and the French were the first nations to create their own great Fencing schools, which show great differences when compared with one another. For a long time, they cultivated a style of fencing that reflected their own models, and today all three are among the great world fencing nations. Over time, Soviet and German fencers who had learnt much from the three prototype styles, exploited their physical attributes, their special characteristics and mentality to create their own national schools of fencing.

Extractions: Eventing Remains Olympic Sport Changes to the eventing format guarantee the sport a spot this summer in Athens. By Jo Meszoly Three-day eventing will remain a part of the summer Olympic Gamesat least for the foreseeable future. Last year, the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) executive board voted to keep the sport in the Olympic program through the 2008 Beijing Games under a new, shorter format proposed by the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) late last year. Beginning with the 2004 Games in Athens, the Olympic eventing format will change from a CCI (three-day event) to a CIC (international horse trial), with a shortened cross country phase. The new format will consist of a dressage test, a cross-country obstacle coursewithout the roads and tracks or the steeplechase phasesand finally, a show jumping phase. Riders who finish in the top 25 will go on to a second show jumping competition, which will decide individual medal winners.

Extractions: The University of Mississippi Fencing Club and The Oxford Fencers are proud to host "Stomped Heart", a foil, epee, and saber competition at the Oxford Park Commission Activity Center on February 14, 2004. This event is open to all fencers. I have attached a file in rich text format with the registration form , and the schedule. Saturday February 14, 2004 Fees: First weapon $20, each additional weapon $5. Fencers ranked B and above fence that weapon free. Anyone who is rated by the FOC as a referee will receive lunch and free registration for refereeing, even if they also compete in the same event they referee in. It is our hope that this will be a fun, casual, efficiently run competition. The chances are good that we will make a C1 or higher competition in open foil and perhaps also in open epee. The venue is theOxford Park Commission Activity Center on Price street in Oxford, MS. From the Hwy 6 bypass in Oxford take the down town exit (South Lamar Blvd.), turn north, in about 3/4 mile you will come to the Oxford square, go around the square to the north west corner and continue west on Jackson Ave. Go through one traffic light and then turn right on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Follow this road until it ends, about 3/4 mile, and turn left on price street. The large metal building on the left just past the tennis courts is the Oxford Activity Center.
