Fencing (4 gold, 1 silver)
(*) At Paris, four Italians made the final of the Sabre (out of 12 finalists). The rules required them to fence off first. Puliti won the three matches easily, and the Hungarians protested that the other Italians had given away their matches. Puliti was disqualified and the other Italians withdrew in protest. Puliti would later punch the head judge (the Hungarian Kovacs) and fight a duel with him.
