    THE OLYMPIC WOMEN'S FOILS TEAM CHAMPIONS -- HUNGARY -- WON THE WOMEN'S TEAM FOIL EVENT AT THE PRE-OLYMPICS FENCING IN MEXICO CITY ON TUESDAY NIGHT. IN THE FINAL, THEY BEAT ITALY 5-2.

    CUBA WON THE BRONZE MEDAL BY BEATING THE MEXICO "A" TEAM 5-4 IN THE CONTEST THIRD AND FOURTH PLACES. APART FROM BEING THE BOUT WHICH FINALLY DECIDED FIRST AND SECOND PLACING, THE DEFEAT BY ILDIKO BOBIS OF HUNGARY OVER ITALY'S LORENZONI WAS DONE OF THE MOST EXCITING METCHES OF THE COMPETITION.

    AS IN ALL FENCING, WINNERS IN THE WOMEN'S FOIL EVENTS WERE THOSE WHO FIRST SCORED FIVE HITS AGAINST THEIR OPPONENTS. THE TARGET IN THE WOMEN'S FOILS IS THE TORSO DOWN TO THE WAIST, SLIGHTLY LESS THAN MEN'S FOILS WHICH ALSO INCLUDES THE LOWER PART OF THE ABDOMEN.

    WOMEN DO NOT FENCE WITH EPEE OR SABRE.
