    The sabre – the only weapon to have been at every Games since 1896

    Fencing was one of the nine sports on the Olympic programme at the first Games of the modern era in Athens in 1896, with one foil event and one sabre event. The sabre is the only weapon to have been at every edition of the Games, all the way up to Rio 2016. It was, however, the last fencing category to have been opened up to women, in 2004 in Athens.
